I live in Solberg, and so I pass through Market Square every time I go home from town. I understand we spent nearly a million dollars rebuilding this. Yet it is mostly empty most of the time.
People bewail the lack of locally produced souvenirs, especially those off the cruise ships. Why don't we have this kind of cultural and food fair in Market Square, all week, or at least every Monday or some day. This would use an underutilized facility and cheaply provide us with another significant tourist attraction. Where I used to live, the farmers' market was the most significant community activity we had.
