The Morning Market

People of all local ethnicities flock to the morning market to snap up the freshest produce, the plumpest bird, the juiciest lizard, and many are resplendent in their colourful traditional dress.

The produce covers the familiar and the unexpected, varying with the seasons: stuffed grilled frogs on a stick, dried buffalo skin, intestines, snails, insects, brightly coloured sweet coconut jellies and fried donuts. Wildlife is often available and sadly, some of them are endangered species: wild cats, mammals and rare birds.

There is also a dry-goods market full of cheap Chinese products as well as a cornucopia of practical everyday things. The morning market runs all day, but hits its height at dawn when people converge from all the neighbouring towns to do their shopping and selling.
