I shop at our markets whenever I can and the reasons are simple:
I know I'm getting good quality fruit, veg, fresh fish, plants etc because I can actually see up close what I'm buying, nothing is hidden inside unnecessary packaging inside a poorly lit building.
I can get a good range of seasonal produce.
I will also get my fresh produce at a good price!
I get excellent friendly service too. The market traders are often very busy dealing with all their customers but they always have the time to say "Hello" and ask how things are going. The personal service counts for alot in today's hectic life.
I think my reasons for shopping at the market aren't rocket science.
I'd love to hear what other local residents think of our Walsall markets.
