Talk about highs and lows!
Thank you to all the shoppers who were so respectful and accommodating of all the changes made to keep each other safe and healthy. The photo above shows how smoothly the market re-opened last week– customers and vendors wore masks, maintained physical distance & were generally thrilled to have the market re-opened.
There were nearly a hundred shoppers in the first hour.
Unfortunately, in the second hour, we had lightning strikes, high winds, flash flooding & branches come down! What a storm!
So a huge apology to any one who came to the market after the storm to shop and found it had shut down. It was simply not safe to continue in light of the weather conditions and the damage to the surrounding trees.
Here’s hoping the weather is more co-operative, as this week there’ll be lots of additional vendors returning to the market.
