Me at the Milton Village Markets, October 2010

I’ve always loved markets. I love the way people mingle and interact. I love the smells that fill the air: coffee, fairy floss, sausages. I love the sound of kids squealing as they chase one another or as they go round-and-round on a dinky ride. I love the music and singing that usually punctuates the air. Also: the eclectic mix of stall holders who sell everything from waratahs, to second hand books and honey. I love markets for the sense of community and the break from the day-to-day that they offer. Markets are a place where people – more often than not – smile, laugh and share stories. Or simply saying hello to a complete stranger.  Markets make you forget, even for an instant, about all the sadness in the world. (Photos Copyright: Moo Dath Reinvent Yourself)
