It’s hard to be discreet with a huge fluffy microphone, and even though I managed to remain out of sight under the noses of the market traders, most of the passersby saw me trying to act all normal as if I wasn’t recording anything. You might even be able to make out a comment from one passing chap. I’ll add his statement to a long list that I have received whilst working in the field. Anyhow, you can mostly hear what I was meant to be recording, market banter. To the right of the stereo field you can hear John Newman and Tina Cook selling their fruit and vegetables and to the left you can hear Martin Whiting selling his hosiery and thermal clothing.
Interesting note: On Google satellite view you can actually see Romford Market on a market day!
