March 24 - Markets

Trash and Treasure, Farmer's, Boot
Trawling for bargains can be a real hoot.

Plants reach out tendrils and fronds
to caress, knick-knacks are lined up
to effectively impress.

Old tools collected from grandfather's sheds
lie rusted, neglected, though artfully outspread.

Aromas of coffee and sausages on sizzle
act as magnets in sunshine or drizzle.

The man who sells olive oil, the artist with felt:
their courage and conviction can make
a heart melt.

So bring all your baskets, bring all your bags
for a day of shopping without hefty price tags.
