Do you still have traditional markets in your countries . The that old way of purchasing goods that involves all the community members and give them all the chance to make money or exchange goods .
      I think it is fading away in most part of the world , especially in countries with big malls and shopping center with fixated price tags on each item .
In my city there were a tradition or let me say a commercial agreement that each town will held the market in a certain day of the week .
So , we have a Saturday day market in ........... and so on
   People move from one town to another to buy things that they need . Everyone has a chance to sell what he made or plant
Notoriously , traditional markets aren't for making profits . They were used as places to make strong acquaintance with villagers and friendship bonds

In my town and many other towns and villages in Germany, we have markets. Farmers, bakers, butchers, handicrafters, beekeepers, and fishermen have stalls at the markets and sell what they produce.

Sometimes, there are special markets. Spring markets, Summer markets, Autumn markets, and on Easter and Christmas. Then, people can also drive with carousels, Ferris wheel and so on.

Ahib Asupermarket ya Rosemary! On Friday, we go very far to buy a lamb and pottery vessels, and potsherds from a market area. Our meat is stored in a long deep freezer. My wife likes that.

We have back there in Karachi Pakistan, Juma Bazar (Friday Market), Aitwar Bazar (Sunday Market) and Mangal Bazar (Tuesday Market).  In the beginning, all the goods were sold on lower prices, then there was no difference between a normal market and or these bazars.  Profiteers are always at hand to destroy all traditions.

Thanks Rosemary for a traditional blog.

  Yes Fizzy  one of the advantages  of local markets  is that you can bargain  about prices  a thing we can't do in big malls   . We can buy things with a suitable  price there 

     Thanks for commenting  Fizzy  :)

Very interesting topic! Anyway what are he selling in the picture, dates? Yes, we have Bazar in many places of our city and bazars are every where in my country. Though we have shopping malls too. I think, people still need this kind of market along with shopping mall as it has a different flavor!
