366 days of gratitude

It won’t work, there aren’t enough people to support it, it will be too cold in winter  . . .

These are just three of the many reactions the nay-sayers had when the idea of a farmers’ market was mooted for Oamaru.

The people promoting it didn’t listen to them and five years-on it is still going strong.

A visit to the market has become a regular part of Sunday morning when I’m home.

It’s a good place to meet people and to buy plants, fresh produce, bacon, baked goods . . .

Today I’m grateful for the market, the people who got it up and running and those who keep it going.
