( To Mooch. The act of looking around and exploring without a set objective in mind )
As anybody who reads these ramblings, thank you by the way if you do, will know I like markets, proper ones. Be they open air or market hall. I like the buzz you get from them. It’s not just a shopping expedition it’s a social occasion as well, a chance to catch up, see familiar faces and perhaps some new ones. A chance to give the daily routines a bit of a shake up.
One of my many favourites is up in Cumbria, Ulverston Market Hall. It’s open five days a week with a street market on Saturdays. It’s not huge but it’s big enough. There’s been a market hall in the town since the late 1870’s with the present building dating from the mid 1930’s, the rebuilding coming after a fire which destroyed the original. If you’re in the area take a look, you can buy proper stuff there, oh and there’s a cafe too.
