CultureGrams―Where in the world?: Markets

As any world traveler can tell you, outdoor and informal markets can be found in just about every country of the world. Markets provide locals a place to buy, sell, and exchange goods, and they often attract foreign visitors as well. Of course markets vary greatly too, from the type of food sold to the design of product displays to bargaining techniques–each market has its own look, feel, and smells.
