Bottles of cider vinegar catches the light at the Granville Island market in Vancouver. The market is almost always packed with tourists but during COVID they have stopped the tour buses from dropping off masses of people and it is actually quite a pleasant experience to shop there now.

Fun shots of markets around the world! I’m glad to say that I’ve been to many … but I still have a few to go!
I don’t think I’ll ever run out of markets to explore!
Some great photos here. Very colourful
