Exploring the mini market of the local park.
Exploring a mini market can be a fun way to discover new products and support local businesses. It was a fun and interesting experience. Seeing the locally grown fruits, and handmade crafts, and getting the opportunity to collect some felt really good.
A few days ago, I went to 'Vinno Jagat'; a very popular amusement park where there were many rides, as well as the place, is well decorated and surrounded by nature.
Let me show you the small marketplace.
There were around 50 different shops. All of them sell mostly similar products which I find really interesting. I don't know what's the reason behind it, to be honest, I would love to see variations in products so tourists can have the opportunity to buy different things.
The handcrafted/handmade products are not top-notch, mostly cheap. Some of them reminded me of my childhood play toys. For example, I used to have a wooden mini sofa set and an Almira for my dolls. Now they can't be found in any mall, but here in this place, I get to see them again.
I bought a mini Almira (sorry forgot to take a photo) for my niece, some clay-made pen holders for my cousins, and a plastic carrom board for my son.
Then we move on to the food stalls. They were selling some fruits like alma, tamarind, pickles, peanuts, and chickpeas.
Lastly, we found the most exciting thing. Cotton Candy!
My son never saw how they make this and was super excited. The seller also helped him make his own though he messed up a little bit. But that's okay, it was fun.
Back in the day, most of the sellers used to bring the candy machine with them and instantly make the candies for the customers. I have also seen this machine after many many years.
Before saying goodbye to the park we all had ice cream and explore the place a little more. You can check my previous post to see more photos of the park. The day went well and we really enjoyed the visit.
Have a good day, everyone.

What a beauty to behold. Everything looked colorful, it will be perfect if they can supply all you need because it will be a bit out of place to visit the market and not get what you may wish to buy.
That Candy is quite hugeee😂
Yes, I couldn't finish the candy either, I'm not a fan of sweet.
Cotton candies! That is one of the best sellers in parks before along with the ice 🍦🍨
I agree. Every kid had one on their hands. :)
What a fun place, I had a good time just seeing the sights! I have to agree with you. I find it odd to sell similar merchandise in all the booths. Perhaps they are showing what is local only? Not sure, but, it would be a little better for the visitors, I would think - if different things to choose from.
I love the smell of cotton candy, but, it really is sweet! :) Did your son love it? I remember when I was a kid, it was a coveted treat!
The ice cream looked delightful! I hope it was good! Thank you for sharing your fun with #MarketFriday!
#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 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. Thank you for being a part of #MarketFriday

Thanks for taking the time to go through the post, it means a lot. :) :)
The stalls are not showcasing local products only but cheap Chaina plastic toys and other things. To be honest, I'm sick of seeing the same thing all over the place, in our shopping malls as well. They have a high demand for sure. But it would be amazing if we can produce something locally, probably wouldn't be as lucrative as those but will be a better alternative.
My son loved the candy and my niece and nephews did too.
Thanks for your compliment. Have a wonderful day over there.
