TO MARKET, TO MARKET TO BUY A FAT PIG

I'm always looking for a decent market close to where we live. There are lots of mediocre ones but I haven't found a really good one yet.  However, I enjoy walking, looking and photographing. 

 I liked how the red glow from the tent lit up the girl's hair. 

                                                                                Smell the pineapple to check if it is ripe.





 Want some jewellery?

 Too many calories

I love foxes.  wonder why?

  1. Hi Diane, you certainly captured the essence of this market. I also find that so many markets in South Africa start out with homemade and natural goods and end up reselling stuff that I can buy in the R5 (five-Rand) store. Love the fox in the last photo. Jo

  8. these are beautiful, all of them. I love all the colors, everything is so bright and cheerful. I see German sausage YUM... I would like wandering there for the same reason you did. I always smell the pinapples, and I saw a woman staring at me this past Saturday like what are you doing.

  9. In your tour of the market, you have gotten good scenes, with beautiful colors. If he did not find, nothing of his taste, to buy, at least he returned, with a great, photographic report

  10. I love outdoor street markets. France, in particular, excels.

  11. We don't do markets and we have some good ones so I'm told.
    Interesting to see the one you have shown - nice flowers.

  12. I never buy anything (except clothes) on a market, but I also love to walk around and take pictures, have a drink, when the weather is nice it's a lovely walk.

  13. I don't buy much ever at our Saturday Craft/Art/Food Cart Market but it is fun to walk around and would be good photo ops for anyone who could take decent people photos -- which does not describe me. I do love the Farmer's market though and buy something every time I go.

  14. That looks like a fun market. All those fruits look very enticing. As do the pastries! I think you have more willpower than I do.

  15. Oh yes! markets are great places for going clickety click with our Canon's Diane - then sitting with a coffee people watching. Haven't blogged much this year - too much time away in other climes - first a lengthy European trip with one of my sister's then several trips to Melbourne and Sydney - and of course a few adventures here in SA and so Voila the year's almost gone !!
