I would like to describe a street market that I visited last week. I live in quite a residential area which is located in the center of the city and the street market is located at the end of my street. It is quite popular in the area, because of the daily offers and interesting deals that are offered to the customers. The name of the market is “Santa Monica Farmers Market”, it attracts the customers with fresh farm vegetables and fruits at reasonable prices. You can also find separate sections for meat and other items.
It was originally started in the year 1910 and it is an old market in my locality and the market is famous for profuse availability of fruits, vegetables, meat and so on, irrespective of the season with eccentric offers. You can find almost all the items in the market.
On every Friday an exhibition is conducted on the other side of the market, where children can enjoy rides and spend some quality time with their family members. One of my friends has a shop that sells apparels in the market and he says that the members in the market are really friendly and co-operative.
I never sweat purchasing anything from my list at “Santa Monica Farmers Market”, because of its transparency. Especially the fruits over there are really fresh and delectable.
- Profuse – Of great quantity.
- Eccentric – Different.
- Apparels – Clothes
- delectable - delicious
