Saturday Market – fun in the rain

Yesterday it rained, non-stop all morning, the stall owners were all still there as this should be one of the big selling days as next week is Sinterklaas, the Dutch celebration of Saint Nicholas’ day that eclipses Christmas in many families.They’d come up with ingenious solutions to provide more shelter, but occasionally you heard great splashes as water brought down tarpaulins.

I couldn’t manage an umbrella as well as my shopping so I wore a hat and tried to stay under the awnings of the stalls. On the plus side it was less crowded, but much less fun.
