Thursdays are Market Days at Axminster. Come rain or shine, hot or cold, the market goes on!
Today it was cold...bitterly cold! The weather didn't seem to deter the traders or the shoppers, as the sign says, every Thursday is Street Market Day.
So we had a look around at all the stalls; books, butchers, fruit and vegetables.
There was even a flower seller but he looked half frozen.
We were half frozen, too. The only sensible thing to do was pop into the River Cottage Canteen for lunch and a steaming pot of tea.
After lunch we purchased a Scotch Egg and some Pork Pies from the deli. In weather like this you need fuel and comfort food.
I have just about thawed out. I wonder how the market traders are tonight.
Regardless of the weather, they will be out there again next week to do it all again. Thursdays are Street Market Day at Axminster come rain or shine!
