Delft Market

Today was a market day in Delft - we took a bus in and walked back. Saw the stalls in the main square, went to the flower part, bought some cheese and pies (which went into the small oven outside for dinner). We had lunch overlooking the main square and market, and also popped into AH Supermarket for some small bits!
