There have been so many people. It’s great to see everybody out, especially with the sunshine. It’s great to see everybody support the local business down at the market.”

Among the many people supporting local businesses and visiting the market was Pamela Woods, who brought her granddaughter Raquel for the first time. “I thought it would a wonderful time to bring her down here, get out and enjoy the fresh air. With the pandemic settling down a bit I thought it not robbery to show her some joy,” says Woods.
