Apostrophe standards upheld

I was pleased to see this sign when home in Richmond last week. Quite a different approach to Birmingham council's.



Just unbelievable. What is so hard about the apostrophe? Its some'thing people just do'nt understand.

Standards are being upheld north of Birmingham though. Apparently signs to Everton and Liverpool grounds mention 'football stadia'.

Comments:

Agree that street signs need to get a better handle on it, but sometimes breaking the rules produces better results. E.g. A's and B's is clearer than As and Bs.

Technically, this could be construed as correct, as if the market is considered a market belonging to farmers, rather than simply a market supplied by farmers...
