Shopping! I like shopping for fresh fruit and veggies in the local market! Reminds me of when I was in Sydney at Paddys Markets. Gosh, I love them! I wish I was back there right now. So many bargains.

The peasants move swiftly through the crowd to get into place as the gates open on the huge square. Common folk meander through, searching for everything they need. Blatant calls for materials pierce the air as my eyes wander toward the glorious castle holding up the entire village.

She wandered around the market place not really looking for anything in particular, just enjoy the feel of the warm Indian air and the bustling atmosphere of everyone trading goods. She could hear a man selling fine, hand-crafted jewelry over there. As well as smell the warm stone oven-baked bread another man was selling. It was wonderful.

Not allowed to ever again see the thriving markets, the bright colors and smell teh wonderful food. Never again allowed to meet the people that remind her so much of home…the only place that was any close to home for hundreds of years…and she was banished from those lands by the first to hold her heart.

Market is the place to buy good things to eat at home. I love going to the market for fun and food! MMM Good! Market is the place where you get everything you need and maybe some stuff you really don’t need.

I went to the market and bought some peas, a carrot and a packet of chewing gum. The man who served me was very attractive and I let him keep the change. I also looked through the magazines but I didn’t buy any of them. I love the market, it’s so lively!

The market was empty, the events of the day before had made sure of that. It was a simple event, simple and bloody. The massacre that ensued the days opening had stained the stones in the central square a deep red.

This morning I tooke allie to the market. She looked so beautiful in her red cardigan. I could see her little head bobbing up and down between the isles of stalls, intrigued by the possiblility of something new and exciting just around the corner.

The market was empty, the events of the day before had made sure of that. It was a simple event, simple and bloody. The massacre that ensued the days opening had stained the stones in the central square a deep red. Peasants lay strewn across this damned courtyard from corner to corner, as if death himself had come to the market.

MArketplaces have always been interesting places to me. People mulling around like fish in the sea, stopping to check out every rock or piece of seaweed. All the bright colors and shapes and sizes. Beautiful.

Surrey Street market. Just saying those words brings back wonderful memories. Loved it there and sitting in the Old Dog and Bull. Bliss!

I was seventeen and working at the market where crazies from the west side came in gloves and high heels, leaving the coffins of their red bricks to mingle with addicts and drunks.

just down the hill across from the huge old dutch oven where all they bake is golden crusty bread filled with warmth and hope, down the hill from the bramble is the market. the market where we buy the most delicious chocolate milk in all the world. it tastes like melted ice cream and swing set friendships.

I love the stock market. While I seldom invest in it, I love pulling out my
apple 4–at least 10 times a day–to check and see how it is doing. Sometimes
it is up . Sometimes it is down. It never stays the same. And it can go up and down.

“Alright, alright,” a man with short, dark brown hair says. “Let’s get this straight- what’s here that’s on the market?”

she was in the market, getting groceries. she sighed as she looked at the colorful fruit and vegetables. she wished her life was that colorful, not that dull gray. she smiled as she choosed the brightest ones she could find.

When I go to a market I am completely lost. Now, we’re not talking about outdoor or flea markets, but grocery stores. I am 50 and have yet to master the supermarket. I have some clues but I usually take about 50% longer to finish an errand than my 12 year old daughter would.

This would be one of my favorite topics. Going to market. I adore the European slower lifestyle where every day one goes to market to choose fresh foods for the day. U.S. society seems to be moving back that direction, slowly, in certain sectors.

The makeshift tents were in line with the stone path, all at an icy – isolated- distance from each other. She attentively eyed the suspicious contents that were in exhibition, until finally catching sight of the human hands, preserved in a watery liquid, that she was looking for.

The market was crowded: cultures clashed, sharp spices of indian food stalls were illuminated by the light reflected from exotic mirrors and cloths from a clothes stall across the road. In the centre of the bustle and chaos, I stood: an island of order and calm.

Down by the market place, I play. I switch oranges with apples and bark at the stray cat and steal people’s carts. I crawl on my hands and knees so no one sees me. I am as evil as they get. A market menace.
By gabby on 11.14.2010
market? ummm i guess its interesting i think people go there to buy food and stuff but i guesss things could be a love market where people just go to get love if there are lonely or feeling unloved? i mean… everyone feels unloved at some point right? everyone should be willing to give everyone love and maybe there should be a love market where you can just go and get some free love. humans need love or there would be no happiness. love leads to happiness and happiness leads to peace.

She stood in the middle of the crowded market, searching above the mass of heads. He’d said four-thirty in the square, right? As the bells chimed, signaling the new hour, she was crestfallen. It certainly didn’t matter, though, as it wasn’t the first time she’d been stood up, and she was positive it wouldn’t be the last.

I love going to the market. We have a small market in my college town. It fits in perfectly with the idea of small New England villages. We call it the DUMP because it is the Durham Market Place. Anyone whose not from here doesn’t know what the DUMP is but anyone who has graduated from UNH does.
We rose from our beds with the sun and readied to go. It would be the last market for the year and we needed to stock up. I was hoping to find three fast fire automatics while my husband wanted to pick up a few long range rifles, along with the usual handhelds. The government regulation of the black market had made it safer, but the hours were a killer.

when I came to Fordham, I felt like the Saturday market was something from another country. the roadside vendors, open-air stands, and- lets face it- proliferation of hispanics reminded me of the trip to the DR after freshman year. and when i walk off campus, the comments “hey, baby,” “oye mamacita!” etc. confirm this fact.
By R A Prensnner on 11.14.2010
The market was full of bright color. Like every saturday the vendors were out with their wres lined up in rows for me too see. Shiny and new, dressed in outfits. The faces with smiles. I loved to see them in all their joy. These kids made me smile.

i went to the market thinking it would be a regular day.
i bought my apples and pears, my greens and reds, completely unaware of what was ahead of me. unfortunately, my nemesis was lurking behind my front door when i came home. “ahoy!” he said, cackling madly. “oh no!” i said. “what ever are you doing here?”
By Myriam on 11.14.2010
I think of a few things . all the fresh farmers markets in the summer. Now asleep
trying to decide if I’m in the market for a new relationship or just dump the old one and go it alone, asleep as well.

In the market. Hear sounds. Chatter everywhere, people bargaining, cars whirring by, babies crying, music plays. All in the market.

there’s a market down the road that i have never been to. i have lived on this street for twenty years, walked the entirety of its length since i could walk, but i have never been to the market.
the devil sells souls in that market.

Markets are generally where you go to purchase things. A fresh market may be selling fruits and vegetables. It might be chaotic and overwhelming, yet it is also enjoyable and exciting- rooting through all the weird interesting things you can buy.
