Market Day in Salem

Opening up a period of healthy remembrance and celebrations

By B. Roach

A ZJB report gives account of Agricultural Minister David Osborne praising farmers who he said have been braving adverse conditions to ensure that the island is self-sufficient in certain agricultural produce.

The day was staged today beginning at the crack of dawn and as our photo shows farmers are seen setting up their vegetable, plants and even pastry stalls, of varying descriptions.

Small section of plants were on show – for sale

The Minister boasted that the day’s event hosted in Salem because of the beginning of the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, was sending a message that Montserrat is bouncing back and forging ahead with agricultural production. He mentioned the abundance of @fresh organically grown onions, carrots and cabbage, lettuce and tomatoes, among other vegetables.

Pastries, sugar cakes, coconut cakes

Visitor and residents alike agree with the Minister, the day was a success, but there were some disgruntled onlookers who asked the question, what was the purpose of building a market in Little Bay if market days would be held elsewhere. But the counter is that they have missed the point, adding, “maybe here should not have been a market built for that purpose.”
