Yesterday I visited the little local market. It was held in the market square under a large and beautiful pillared area. Love these markets not for what I purchase but just that they reflect life in the village or town.
At this market there was a band playing more of that in a future blog, There were various stalls selling local produce and handcrafts. All of the vegetables a fruit on sale are seasonal and not shipped in.
At this market there were various artists scattered around each sketching part of the local scene.
Of course I could not resist.
Reminded me of the tale of two farmers who decided that they should get together to make some extra for the sale of their produce. They decided to travel round all the local farmers and purchase from them at a price and sell at a different price at the markets in the area.
They rented a truck and drive around a number of the farms and purchase a load of watermelons. They paid the farmers 50 pence per watermelon.
They set up at the first market and sell them at two for a pound. They soon sell out.
On the way home one farmer says to the other, "You know we did not make too much money. How do you figure it?"
The other thinks for a bit and replies. "We need a bigger truck."
Like them I was never very good at math.
Have a great day! I am counting on you all.
