This was a tough blow for us because we eat at the market about twice per week and we've formed quite an attachment to it. We love both the food and the cooks. The food is our comfort and the cooks are our buddies.
Sappiness aside, we found out that there was some sort of legal dispute between the university and the market, and though we haven't been told for sure, we've surmised that the market co-op has solved the dispute by moving a few yards away from the university gate. The move seems trivial, but it also seems to have worked.
Our night market is now back, and I bought dinner from my favorite chao mian man and la bread lady for the first time since the market closed early in the semester. Really, it had been only a couple of weeks since I'd eaten at the market, but it felt like forever. Time still has a funny way of passing slowly here.
