Market Friday: Let's get food stuffs

Hello everyone, it's #marketFriday by @dswigle !!!.
Today I'm going to share my market experience.
The Market is located in Abia State, Nigeria. The market opens once a week,it rotates according to it's market day "Nkwo". This week own is on Friday.
The Christmas and new year celebration that comes with increase price rate of food stuffs is over.
This week food stuffs prices are fair enough (I must say reduced price), especially those produced in the area, though imported goods are still having the same price as before.
Every week I go to this market to buy food stuffs I use for the week, especially those you can get in cheaper price. Most vendors buy from this market, they add price to make their own profit once they resale to you.




There was little yams to buy last week, but I was very happy to see a lot of yams to buy this week.
You get to choose from a lot of available yams sold, buy more than 3 tubers and get 1 free. I must say this week is blessed with yam availability.

Having bought yam, the idea of getting things to cook porridge yam came.
Below is crayfish, the biggest portion is sold at #5000, the medium portion is #1000 and the smallest is #500, the prices of the crayfish increased.


The next photo is vegetable (pumpkin leaf, waterleaf and cucumbers).
The Pumpkin leaf is sold at #300 per bundle,the dry season made the price to be so.
Waterleaf #100 per bundle.
Cucumbers #200 per portion.


The photo below is stockfish generally called "cod" here, the prices are based on the mark written on the body which is determined by its size and weight.


Thank you for following me to the market. Let's go back for now. Till next time.
Thanks to @dswigle for the motivation and encouragement.


Those yams are quite amazing! Buy three, get one free! What a deal! The size of those yams has always defied me. The yams here in the US will maybe fit inside the palm of your hand, sometimes a little bigger, but, so much tinier than those!

Such a nice market and I want you to know, everything is getting higher and higher. I am glad you gave us such a great market experience!

#MarketFriday began as a way to reach out across the globe and learn about different cultures through by their markets, especially local markets and farmers markets and eventually branching out and evolving 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, even your language/languages that separate us... Along with the fact of what 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.
