Shopping for Holy Day
Today is Meugang day in my area. People flock to the market and shop in preparation for tomorrow to welcome the fasting month. As is the tradition in our local community, people are required to buy meat to eat.
I went to the market and bought a few kilos of meat, spices and also various other basic necessities such as rice, spices for the needs of one month of fasting. These needs are only easily found in traditional markets and not in supermarkets.
Towards the fasting month, various kinds of household needs are bought up in the market. The people who visit the market are very crowded. As is the tradition that applies for the next month, this month Muslims are required to fast for a whole month. For those who want to stock up on their food to welcome the holy month.
What is very interesting in traditional markets is that here we can buy by face to face with buyers. And in general, the productivity of goods is local agricultural products that are transported from people's gardens.
In this traditional market, a direct trading system applies between buyers and sellers with cash payments. Lots of basic necessities for sale in traditional markets. Here people prefer to shop at traditional markets because the prices are cheap. And can make direct bargaining transactions. Even in traditional markets we can find various types of rare and very organic needs.
That's it guys, my post today, hopefully inspired.
