Scenes from the Agromodiano Market
in the city center

Photographs by GR Davis

June 2008

 

The market, which occupies several city blocks, is crowded with sellers and buyers every weekday.
Fresh vegetables and fruits, grains, cheeses, fish, chicken, pork, beef, clothing, shoes, linens, kitchenware,
trinkets, and junk are for sale. Fishmongers compete for shoppers with inistent bellowing. Butchers hack meat.
Buyers sample olives. Buyers point, grocers bag and weigh. Who needs Walmart? Not me!
