This entry, therefore, is an invitation to begin an exploration of the small open market. Our exploration will begin with a number of images. One of these is a longitudinal view of the market. It is wedged between the Old Kotor wall and a busy street. In this picture, you will see various tables that act as temporary stands. Vendors set up their tables in the morning and take them down in the afternoon. Adjacent to the wall are a series of more permanent stalls that can be locked up. Those used by sellers of perishable foods such as fish have their products removed daily. Those with durable goods simply lock them up after close of business.
I have included several pictures of vendors' stands, as well as an image of slika, dried figs.
One feature of the market I observed was a personal, individualistic atmosphere. Customers appeared to socialize with each other and with the vendors. All the vendors appeared to be small in scale, and many appeared to be managed by families. The choices were limited, but one could maintain a rich and varied diet from shopping here on a regular basis.
I plan to return to this place on a regular basis and to share my knowledge with you.
