to market, to market...

Friends took us to the local market and it was fascinating.
Here you can buy almost anything you can imagine.

A rooster perches next to a load of watermelons.


A truck bed full of fresh pineapples


How do you begin to choose which rice to buy?


The selection is much better than that at the local grocery stores.
We were told that the stores actually come to the same market to buy their wares early each morning.

The market is not only for food... shoes anyone?


We'll spare you the butcher photos in the beef and chicken sections of the market, but the fish selection is pretty extensive!
You're also spared the smells of the meat section as vicarious visitors. :o)
