I would enjoy buying all we need from here :)) I see also that it is well organized and it is clean. You are lucky to have this market to buy the products you need. 😎

I think it's because of this market is run by temple charities, probably this is the main reason why the market is clean and organized. 😀

Yes, maybe that is the reason.
Anyway, once again, it looks so great 👍

Your post was read and upvoted by MarketFriday. Thank you so much for participating in the challenge. It has been a wonderful experience with all the different sharing of the cultures. Thank you!

MarketFriday began as a way to reach out across the globe and learn about different cultures through their markets, especially local markets and farmers' markets, and eventually branched out and evolved over time from straight shopping to a cultural affair as it highlights how we differ and then again, how much we are alike. We have become a melting pot of culture, but, it is still the Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, and even your language/languages that separate us... Along with the fact that is these things are normal for us. There are unwritten rules that rule our social behaviors. I see this as allowing for increased tolerance between cultures and nations, and opportunities to come together on an even playing ground. A strong culture can be beneficial to a country as it promotes unity, especially during a crisis, peaceful debate, and open dialogue. I have learned so much about all of you and it has been an amazing experience. I can only hope that learning about each other can help us work together for a peaceful world.
