It really wasn’t a very nice day on Saturday but it was great to see so many people down on Roman Road for the market relaunch. The market has been given the Portas treatment for a new TV series to be screened in the New Year. Market stalls have been given a splash of colour with candy stripe tarpaulins and new stallholders have been invited to set up shop to add some much needed variety. This is initially for a trial period of 10 weeks but I really hope it lasts beyond that.
Mary checking out the market. Soon after this I was interviewed on camera. I was spotted taking this shot and before I knew it I was babbling like an idiot to Mary. I don’t think they’ll be offering me my own show anytime soon.
A wonderful new handmade cushion stall
It’s great to see some food stalls incorporated into the market
