Rothschild Francis Square (Market Square)

Write Review
Market Square

Commonly called Market Square, it has served as a produce market and community meeting venue for nearly two centuries. When the square was established is uncertain but it appears on maps as early as 1836. The cast iron bungalow is dated around 1904. Market women played an important role in the square, selling fruits and goods. The bungalow was controlled by these colorful and spirited ladies. It was rare that a male vendor would sell under the bungalow. French farmers selling functional straw crafts, fish and produce were once commonplace at the Square; they sold their goods from the perimeter of the Bungalow. Today the Square gets a handful of vendors on any given day, typically Friday and Saturday mornings being most busy.
