Market News

When it rains relentlessly at the Market, as it did today, everything looks different.
There are people about but they are only giving their time in the wet to absolute essentials: fruit and veg, fish, ultra-cheap household effects. When it rains, the latter tradespeople cover their stall on all sides with white tarpaulin. This provides a very pleasing backdrop for Dave the plant man.

On a dry day his stall is a little meadow on tables, against a cacophony of plastic and cellophane. Today, naturally hydrated and softly lit, it resembles a stand from the Great Pavilion at the Chelsea Flower Show.
