Suggested Activity 6: Visit a market

Visit a Market

'The Story Factory Reading Zone' readers say:
"I love going to the markets in Summer. The days are bright, it's hot and usually, the markets I go to are by the ocean (where I vacation)."

We have farmer's markets once a month in our town, as well as weekly local markets and occasional local excellence markets. I love going into town on market day, especially when its sunny. If you go to your nearest market then you're bound to bump into lots of people you know. It also supports your local economy, as well as small businesses.
When we go on holiday we often find ourselves in the local markets (we usually self-cater). Its just so much more relaxing than shopping in the big supermarkets. You can get a feel of the local environment and can often buy locally made goods as well.

Over to you:
What sort of things are for sale at your local market? 

Pop over to 'Living in a Time Warp' this afternoon to join in with the first 'Summer Sharer'
