Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 19th December, 2015)
Fruit & Veg
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.
Just look at the shine of that pensioners shoes
What! No Brussels Sprouts?
That is a little how I remember it...we had a stall similar...ah the memories...thank you Rachel....cheers all!!!
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.
Irene, look here:
Yes I would, Alex... even more in the forties, although I wasn't born then. I love it, and feel so "at home" in forties clothes at the events we go to.
Nicely composed Rachel!
Thanks, Ernest and Neil. I looked it up. Had never seen them before!
Bolton market may be cheaper,but only if you have a free bus pass!!!
Hadn't thought of that, Mick! I've got one! Hope you have a lovely Christmas. x.
