Onion Seller in Market Place

Had to look twice in Market Place earlier today - actually saw an onion seller just outside Mondays' Child - strings of onions draped all over his bike.

Now he wasn't wearing a beret and I don't know if he was French - could this be the advance guard of a market of some sort?

All we needed was the accordian player and that would have set the scene - well if Exeter can have a German market at Christmas we can have a French one - no matter how small!

There used to be an onion seller - who used to wear a beret and a bike with strings of onions - made life interesting!

Yes, still the occasional genuine  'onion johnny' comes over on Brittany ferries from Roscoff. Fantastic, mild and sweet pink onions!

Brilliant - he must be based in a van or similar vehicle surely - he would need space to store his stock.

I hope he turns out to be the nucleus of similar ventures and Market Place can live up to its name.
