Because I’m sure a lot of persons didn’t know about today being market day while a lot of persons forget. So I think if they network it a little bit more social media, online on TV, more likely the week before so that more persons can know this is where we are going to be,” Crandon noted.Meanwhile, local craftswoman Nadia Lockhart expressed similar views when she spoke to this newspaper. “Maybe they can do a little bit advertising cause some folks say they didn’t know about it, is somebody just went home and inform them about it. But a little bit more advertising can be done to get more persons and in that way, persons who produce their own stuff like myself can also come out,” the craftswoman said.Nevertheless, when this publication took a stroll through the many stalls later in the day, persons were still taking advantage of the sales which included a wide range of fresh fruits, vegetables, agro-processed products, crafts and plants.Local farmer, Andrea Seechen, who transported her goods all the way from Upper Corentyne, Berbice, to Georgetown, posited that despite the late arrival, her produce was completely sold out.Same can be said for representative of Triple “A’s” catering, Aweena Alder as she described the early morning atmosphere at the market.last_img read more
