Another glorious day outside today - I am about to go and sample Oldham's European Market, which has returned to town today. One thing I always wonder about these markets is where they are the rest of the time. I imagine them returning home to their quaint villages rolling in the money they have amassed charging £3 for a baguette, but I hear from people around the country that they too have markets. Is it just one travelling market, or are there hundreds of deserted markets in France because every single continental cheese-seller has de-camped to here? And do we return the compliment...? Are there black-pudding peddlars across Europe, offering their wares in a Bury-tinged French at €7 a pop?
