Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) Join me as we share our markets across the globe. I always look forward to seeing what you send me! It is amazing to see the different markets and cultures of our friends here on Hive. Show me what you have this week!
Have you ever wondered if you could use something for a #MarketFriday post? Wonder no more! Rule number one! Go to the market, or ANYWHERE that you pay money for a service. Take pictures! Be creative! You can see that it doesn't have to be a traditional market. It can be a museum, an art class that you paid for, an auction, or a festival of any kind. This is meant to be fun and pull out your creativity. There are so many different ways to do it and places to go. Don't get me wrong! We love markets! This has turned into a wonderful cultural event, so being in those markets! The above shot was from the Scottish Highland Games.
These games are built around traditional Highland sports, including the caber toss, tug o' war, and the hammer throw. Pretty exciting when you see one of them tossing a giant tree across the field, by themselves! A Highland games event usually includes Highland dancing and music. Even a set of bagpipes rocking out. No lie! Of course, I lined up for the fish and chips. Yummy!
Then, #MarketFriday went to a Civil War reenactment. Civil War reenactments go through great efforts to recreate a certain battle or event in Civil War history. I went to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to watch this one. I found it particularly interesting as they set up the camp for the entire week that the battle goes on. I walked through the camp and watched them cook as they did in their time and sleep, practically under the stars. It was a fun #MarketFriday to do!
Chichen Itza was a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya people. I used information that I found on the internet. If you use something off the internet, please source it. Don't know how to do it? You can ask anyone or you can reach me on discord: @dswigle3637
La Pirámide, known as the Temple of Kukulcán, is a Mesoamerican step-pyramid that dominates the center of the Chichen Itza archaeological site in the Mexican state of Yucatán. The pyramid building is more formally designated by archaeologists as Chichen Itza Structure 5B18. source
I love to share and be shared with! I am intrigued by different cultures. It is exciting and yes! I would love to see yours! Don't forget to take photos wherever you happen to be shopping - whether it be the grocery store, the local marketplace, even an art gallery, or a kite festival! Wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise.
A fishing charter, where you pay a fee and they take you out deep sea fishing. It is quite sporting way out there and the fish are a bit more challenging. So, to be clear, there are many ways to meet the challenge. They are pretty wide parameters for you to be in.
Another different #MarketFriday, but, who doesn't love to be a little bit different? But, then, I love being practical too. So there is no right or wrong here, just what drives you that week. I love to share and be shared with! I have always and forever liked to see different fruits and vegetables or products that are being sold. Perhaps I cannot get them here. So, yes! I would love to see yours! Don't forget to take photos wherever you happen to be shopping - whether it be in the grocery store, the local marketplace, or even an art gallery. Wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise. Be different if you wish! It does not have to be a traditional market! Don't forget to use the hashtags #MarketFriday and @dswigle. If you are not sure of something, feel free to ask me.
You get the point, right? People don't need to go to the grocery store to participate. You also should not feel pressured if you have nothing. We'll be here next week and the week after. We have been here for five years, we aren't likely to go anywhere for a while. I hope you will join us as we share the different markets. It has been such a pleasure to see markets from all over the world. Who doesn't love to see what they are selling? There is always a curiosity attached to foreign ingredients, different produce, or any product sold. So, yes! I would love to see yours! Don't forget to take photos wherever you happen to be shopping - whether it be in the grocery, art galleries, or wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise.
