This is not an "open" market place. This the sidewalk in front of the vegetable store. In most instances, the shopkeeper really does not want you to touch his wares. He will do that for you. All you do is point out what you want. This sidewalk is full, but his shop is even fuller!
And then there is fresh, warm bread! Well, this bread isn't so fresh or warm anymore, but you get the idea. My hub says he remembers when bread bakers went from door to door delivering fresh bread. Kind of like the milkman, which they had here, too.
