Theme Day - Empty

The first day of the month brings about Theme Day across the CDPB community and the theme for July is Empty.

Today I'm showing the Farmers Market, or rather, whats left of the Farmers Market. The local produce market takes place on the first and last Friday of each month in front of the Municipal Offices and runs until 3pm. I took this photo at 3.10pm, they don't hang about! In the distance you can make out the green frames of the stalls as a team of guys remove them until the next time.

To see what others have come up with for the theme click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

It astounds me how quickly markets can be dismantled. Good choice. Nice shot.

Makes me long for B'ham markets. Of all the things we lack here, this is top of my list. Good choice.

You are right they dont let any dust get on the produce do they. I like the colors of the tents.

Great choice Marley!

The ones I know around my neighbourhood clear off pretty quickly as well. Love to see the market when it is busy

Great shot for theme day. It certainly captures the emptiness of the farmer's market before/after the day.

It seems to me I've seen a picture of this market when it was going strong. Have you posted one, Marley? Or was it Lynn?

Do they sell tomatoes there?

Greg said...

Nothing like knock off time to get people moving!

Must be a real hive of activity when in full swing.

I prefer the markets when they are full and bustling with vendors and shoppers. It's another sad looking place yet perfect for the theme day photo.
