An evening at typical south Indian weekend market

Market

I love shopping. The great advantage of shopping as far as I think is it gives a lot of refreshment and relaxation, apart from a lot of confidence in ourselves (as long as we don’t spend too much) !! In India there are multiple options where one can spend hours together in shopping without spending really a lot money. One of those places is a weekend market, which is set up at a locality once in a weekend at every place. It gives a lot of options to shop, vegetable being the main criteria, others being small household items, fancy items, ladies accessories like bags and chappals, and snack items and many more!! I usually indulge in this shopping along with my four year old son. He really enjoys this because he finds many ice creams and toys for him there!!

Here are some of the glimpses from our weekend market.
