Hello You

Marian and Robert Pitt

"So its been 63 years since I first came to the market. Time flies when one is having fun.
My dad use to take me there when I was a little girl and always bought me some fish lollies. When I was 17,  I worked at Charles Moore, where the Police Courts are now.
Doing my shopping at the market after I finished work was always a joy. When Robert and I married and had our 4 children a treat for them on the school holidays was going to the Market and buying fish lollies.
We would meet up on a Friday nights with family and have our meal there and of course take the grandchildren to buy them fish lollies. Since we both retired, we visit the market on a Friday and have lunch in the food court.
We enjoy shopping at the market and over the years we have enjoyed saying hello to the people we buy our goods from. My special treat is allowing my self to buy something nice from the Providore to have with a cup of tea when we arrive home.
