Positive Results From Special Monday Trading

Monday 24th December was a special trading day as the market’s food traders took advantage of high Christmas demand for food. The top end of the market was also open and, despite many General Merchandise Traders staying away, those that attended generally reported good business.

The exception appeared to be our souvenir stalls who reported quiet business but any trader who was able to cater to the demand for last minute Christmas gifts seemed to do well.
One trader said it was like a good Friday’s trade while another said it was significantly better than the day before (the 39 degree Sunday).
