    Default Is comma needed?

    Mother bargained with the stallholder, as that was the first time she was buying fish from him.
    Is it necessary to insert a comma after 'stallholder'?

    Many thanks.

    Hi K
    No, a comma is not required if the adverbial clause is at the end of the sentence.
