“ONE more week to go. Where will you go?” That came from a reg­u­lar at the Sta­tion Street Mar­kets as she paid for her fresh fruit and veg haul last Fri­day. The till op­er­a­tor said she would have some down­time be­fore they started up again at another lo­ca­tion. De­spite the clo­sure at the end of this week­end, laugh­ter still rang out among ven­dors at the iconic mar­kets on their sec­ond last week­end of trad­ing. These peo­ple have opened their stalls to­gether ev­ery week for more than 25 years, many as the sun comes up. While some stall­hold­ers have found new lo­ca­tions, they won’t have the ca­ma­raderie that quite ob­vi­ously ex­ists now be­tween ven­dors. The clo­sure will also dis­rupt the rou­tine of many reg­u­lars who visit the mar­kets re­li­giously ev­ery week­end to do their weekly fruit and veg shop, buy fresh flow­ers and en­joy a cof­fee and some in­ter­na­tional food. How­ever, with the clo­sure comes a pos­i­tive change for the land­scape in Su­bi­aco.
