Market Day Vegetables


Each Saturday, vendors set up shabby wooden booths with canvas canopies to shelter themselves and their vegetables from sun or rain. Buyers chose the best of the onions, cabbage, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, and yams. The seller weighed them on his balance scale using brass weights and placed purchases in baskets, rope bags, or pails the buyers took with them to the market.
