A great bell tolled before the doors were opened, apparently a long held tradition for every market move, the last being 54 years ago!! One of the Granelli family did the honours with the bell and then everyone surged in.
And what a delight the building is. Light and airy and spacious and clearly laid out. Plenty of the familiar stalls from Castle Market, which only closed on Saturday, and a good smattering of interesting new independent traders.
There was a great happy buzz about the place and they have just said on the news that a record 25,000 people visited today!
We were proud to have been two of them!
I'll leave you with my photos . . .
