tony was out for his second day of shopping at the supermarket when he came across the fresh market, tucked away in his front yard.
He said he was surprised when he saw the stalls, which sell fresh fruits and vegetables and also produce milk, cheese and butter, for under $10 a pound.
“I thought it was a lot more than that, but it was like a miracle that they had them open and stocked,” he said.
The market was packed, with about 50 people in line, and the atmosphere was festive.
“There was a bit of a vibe in the store, it was really lively, it made you feel like you were there,” he added.
“You could see how much the local community were helping the farmers and the dairy farmers and their families.”
Mr Dyer said he had been shopping with his wife and kids and would continue to do so, even though he is unable to go into the market anymore.
“It’s just a really great experience, you know, it’s nice to be out in the community and get out and enjoy the sun,” he joked.
“We’ve got plenty of food there and a lot of fresh produce, so I think I’ll probably go back there again.”
