My turn... I have chosen markets because is one of my favourite places when I visit a city. For me they are very authentic and you can feel the local ambient. Every market, souk, bazaar that are open or closed are valid. Some examples below.

 

Same rules as always - choose 3 of your best pics in Alamy, entries close at midnight on the 31st October, UK time, after which I will choose 8 to vote for.

 

I am sure that there will be very interesting images, as always, and you will give me a lot of trouble to choose only 8.

Ladies critically inspecting the wares in a market in India

A butcher's stall in a market in Nepal

 

 

a-bolivian-woman-working-on-a-market-dre

A Bolivian lady having a bad day, La Paz market. Probably because I was the 500th tourist to take photos of her stall that day (or maybe she knew I was going to post her picture underexposed by half a stop).

That brings back happy memories of my time (1969 - 1971) working in Halifax.
