Since the 35 years I now live in Waterloo, there was always market on sundays. Of course at that time it was a little farmer's market very familiar where everybody knew everybody and besides vegetables there was nothing else to sell.
But with the years other things were added, clothing, antiques, books, cleaning products etc. and it became a quiet big market where people from other little towns around are coming each sunday too.
It is also a place to meet people and chat and often after shopping they gather in a café to have a beer or a glass of wine together. In summer the terrace is open and also seats on the sidewalk. The market is a social event and very much appreciated by British and American people living in Waterloo or around.
The weather was quiet cold because of a little wind.
but it didn't bother the shoppers
freshly baked bread of all kinds
For those who don't like to cook on sundays there are a big choice of freshly prepared food, like Lasagne, moussaka, Tartiflette etc.
Lots of people buy their Sunday chicken here, well roasted and well spiced.
You can also buy homemade pasta, spaghettis, raviolis, etc

Before I returned home I met a neighbors couple, a friend of my painting course, and some other people. When I came home I heard "where have you been so long ?" Sunday market is always fun.
