Food and drink both favourite things of mine! Racing through Newark's market on Friday for an appointment I noticed the French food traders. People were thronging around the brightly coloured stalls no doubt attracted by the smells and vibrant hues. It was great to see the continental market alongside the regular retail market. How fantastic to shop around Europe without actually leaving town and what a great place Newark is; cosmopolitan yet with great history. And as I rushed towards Strays Coffee
shop for my meeting I realised I am beginning to miss London less and less and that the vibrancy of a small market town such as Newark (and Newark does it so well) is a mighty match for the allure of anonymous city life.
