Market Day

by Stredwick


Market Day



 



Wednesday market up the road



Saturday market down the road



Those days were the nicest yet



Wednesday and Saturday market



 



People came from far and near



Buying and selling their wares



Some dressed in the latest wear



Making their strides with care



2



From the higglers to the coal burners



The butchers, the famers



The market gardeners



Bringing to market their week’s labour



3



The fish vendors shouting fish, fish



Doctor fish, king fish



Other vendors peddling their wares



Anxious faces moving through the crowd



4



Trying to get goods at the lowest bargain



Laughter spilling out amongst the gathering



Vendors and their customers haggling



Some filling their baskets and moving on again



5



Others lining up at the soup vendors



While others lined up at the cooked food vendors



People coming and going all the time



Way into evening time



5



And finally it was time to go home



The market was over



And they’d all pack their bags



And head for
Let others and the author know if you liked it

Liked it alot?
