Today we’re visiting world markets!
Going to the local market is a highlight of any trip abroad or at home, not just for a look at the local foods and produce but also the local social scene. Markets are a place of connection, a time to catch up and share news, a way of earning a living while playing an integral part in sustaining the community.
From a grand bazaar to a tiny convenience store and everything in between, a market shows the essence and character of a place brought to life by the personalities within it. Pride and care shine through in meticulous displays, artistic arrangements and gratitude for happy customers.
Browse, shop, chat, smile and feel lucky if you’re someone’s first buyer of the day. The market is the beating heart and lifeblood of every community. Now more than ever, we understand this and thank everyone around the world doing their part and their best to keep the markets open.
