SUN SETS, TO RISE ON A NEW SUBI
“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.
