Market Snapshots in Man, Côte d’Ivoire

in steempress •  17 days ago

Market in Man, Côte d'Ivoire.

It wasn't a special market day or something, just an ordinary day.

Streets are busy like this every day.

Pepper! Spicy!!

Sorry I forgot what she was selling, should have taken a closer picture.

Karité is one of the French words I learnt here in CI. Côte d'Ivoire is famous for its shea butter production. Gonna buy some maybe one of these days.

A typical snack, tastes like oliebol in Belgium and the Nederlands, good since now it's holiday season, we eat it at Christmas market in Belgium ^^ festive snack then.

There isn't much snack in WAfrica so even though I didn't like oliebol much still it's good as a snack for now haha.


I hope I didn't burn that foufou!

Welcome to #MarketFriday and thank you for posting from the Côte d'Ivoire, where nobody has done so before. The market it teaming with food and people! Man looks like a sizable town and I love how colorful the market is.

I can tell it is an everyday market as the people have the "everyday job" look on their faces. :)

I am glad to hear that butter was on your shopping list! Nobody can go all the way there and leave sans shea butter. I want to thank you for showing off the snack that tastes like oliebol, the people, who are always interesting, no matter where you go. I like the way the woman carries her baby as she runs the market. I look forward to you posting again and will track you down. :)

Please leave the link to your post here so it can easily be found by others. They are easier to find in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you so much!! ❤

Upped and steemed
