FINDLAY MARKET HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PLACE TO GET FRESH PRODUCTS

A PLACE TO SHOP WHERE YOU’RE SAFE AND PEOPLE WATCH THEIR CONDUCT

HOME GROWN VEGETABLES AREN’T ALL ONE CAN ENJOY ON THE MARKET IN A DAY

THEY HAVE GOOD FOOD WHERE YOU CAN EAT, DRINK AND HAVE A SEAT BY THE WAY

THE MARKET DECIDED TO ALLOW THE CINCY HOMELESS COALTION’S NEWSPAPERS TO BE SOLD

GAVE ME A SECTION TO SELL STREETVIBES AND TO MEET MY BOSS WHO WAS OLD AND COLD

LITTLE DID I KNOW THE BOSS USED TO SELL PAPER BAGS THERE WHEN HE WAS A BOY

THEREFORE, HE KNEW MR. FLOWER MAN, MR. COFFEE MAN AND MR. TEA MAN, NOW I’M COY

FEAR FOR MY PLACE ON THE MARKET, I HAD TO GET TO KNOW MY BOSS

I KNEW WITHOUT HIS UNDERSTANDING, TO SELL STREETVIBES WOULD BE LOST

I BEGAN TO SHARE WITH HIM THE PAPER ALLOWING HIM TO READ STORIES AND MY POETRY

ONCE HE UNDERSTOOD HOMELESSNESS READING THE PAPER HE SHOWED LOYALTY

HE SAID HI I’M MR. MARTY AND I SAID I’M MS. WILLA SELLING STREETVIBES TODAY

THEN HE TOLD ME HOW LONG HE’S BEEN WORKING SECURITY, FOR YEARS WITHOUT A DELAY

I BELEIVE HE GREW ON THE MARKET AND HE IS MY INSPIRATION TO COME TO FINDLAY BY THE WAY

I THANK YOU MR. MARTY FOR SO MANY YEARS OF DEDICATION AND BEING A FRIEND OF MINE

I WILL ALWAYS STAY ON MY SCHEDULE SELLING STREETVIBES AND I’LL ALWAYS BE JUST FINE
