Nice photo. Many outdoor markets have the same displays, but when you know it is Wigan Market it takes on a different dimension.

You wouldnt think there would be much call for Moolis in Wigan, thats them big looking things that look like a big white carrots front left of the photo.
They are also knows as White Radish and Daikons.

A lovely colourful photograph Rachel - this is reminiscent of the old days when you could choose fruit and vegetables from half a dozen stalls on Wigan Market and were spoiled for choice. Whoever invented plastic wrapping for cucumbers I wonder!!

Stallholder doesn`t dare to show the prices!
Mick; thought you would have mentioned that Bolton market is much cheaper.

I've never heard of "Moolis", Mick, or seen them before. Anyone know how you cook them and what they taste like? I like the way a lot of people are now taking their own bags for shopping. I always take my wicker basket. Lovely photo.

Irene you'd suit a part in Heartbeat the 1960s police series, you'll feel at home there.

Irene; put `moolis` in your search engine.
