Vendors and customers came out to the St. George’s Olde Towne Market this afternoon [Mar.13], with this first day of daylight saving bringing bright and sunny weather. Tom Wadson’s stall was busy as always, with shoppers buying fresh vegetables, with Mr Wadson selling out of certain varieties. Triangle Treats Bermuda were on hand to tempt shoppers with cupcake delights, treating our photographer to a pineapple cupcake. Other items on sale included Bermuda books, jewelry, clothing, baskets, handmade cards, gombey dolls, fresh baked goods, carved masks, handbags and more.
The Olde Towne Market launched on Halloween last year, and is now in its second season. It is a joint venture between local businesses, the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce, the Corporation of St.George’s and the EEZA.
The organisers say, “Our non-profit organization is dedicated to rejuvenating the town of St.George’s by providing a tangible enterprise in which many can participate. We believe that the market will provide a ‘training ground’ for would be entrepreneurs and provide an outlet for the many creative and talented locals and residents that live on the beautiful Island of Bermuda.”
The Market will run until April 10th, and is located on Water Street, King’s Square and along the dock, operating on Sundays from 2:00p.m -6:00p.m.
