Market Place re-opens

The market place at McField Square on School House Road, George Town re-opened to the public Saturday.

Friday night at the grand pre-opening party visitors enjoyed music from local band Intransit and dined on free food.

It was understood that the popular Cuban band that was supposed to play for the event did not make it because visas from Cuban authorities were not issued in time for the group to travel.

From 7am Saturday residents and visitors cashed in on a variety of local produce, foods, arts and crafts from vendors occupying the colourful stalls.

For sale were art works, garden produce, local sweets and desserts, coconut water, clothes, shoes, straw household goods and other local items.

On the compound there was also a children’s corner to keep them happy while parents did some shopping.

Those who did not feel like shopping just sat around enjoying themselves during the day.
