Weather didn’t do the Saturday Street Market any favours

By David F. Rooney

Saturday’s Street Market was a boon to many retailers but they could have done without the spitting rain, steady breeze and cool afternoon temperatures.

“We saw great traffic throughout the day (but) it was definitely busier in the AM,” said organizer Nicole Cherlet.

“The weather is a tricky one; if it’s too sunny and beautiful, most people tend to play in the mountains or their garden,” she told The Current. “We actually usually do better when it’s a little spotty. I could have done without the wind though.”

So could many of the potential customers who had mostly packed it in after 1;30 or 2 pm.

Here are a few photos taken during the early afternoon:
