Africa: African Market

One of the best ways to explore the culture, customs, and cuisine of a country is to visit its market. There you can observe the local people, taste their food, and buy their wares. You will also meet colorful traders who do their utmost to communicate with you, whatever your language.

You would be hard-pressed to find more fascinating markets than those in Africa. They teem with people and products of every sort imaginable. There you can feel the pulse of Africa.

In many large African cities, the cheapest and quickest way to go to the market is by getting a ride on a motorbike.

Hordes of people, including children, carry merchandise on their heads. When you step forward to take a closer look, their baskets reveal live chickens, and fruits among other items.

Live goats, chickens and pigs are also on sale for customers who prefer to do their own butchering.
