Street Market Stalls at the University
I was at the University today and discovered that on a Thursday there are some street market stalls in Square 3. Today there was a fruit and vegetable stall and a bread, cakes, samosas and other savouries vendor. There will be more stalls once term starts. I bought 3 excellent avocados for £1 so prices are comparable to the street market in Colchester but with less air pollution. I am not sure whether it operates all day or just in the mornings. The campus is looking good at the moment so you could combine shopping with a stroll around Wivenhoe Park.
