Street With Stalls In Downtown

Whenever I visit a new place for me, I want to see the market first. That's because the market is the liveliest place in a locality, people are in a constant move and everyone has his needs.

Where am I now? In Iasi, Romania. The few close colleagues who have read my posts know this well but I think that if there will be new readers, for they have to point location.

I'm a visitor to this city and I don't know it very well and that's why any shopping go-ahead means discovering new locations. I'll show some pictures of these locations and not the actual shopping. In fact, my desire is to show as much as possible from this city and the places that have impressed me.

In Iasi you cannot miss the Palace of Culture. It's the most representative building and can be called the emblem of the city. Because I wrote many dozens of blogs about Iasi, I used many pictures of the Palace. Like the one today, made from inside the mall just next to the Palace.


Iasi is a tourist town. Especially in the summer, tens of thousands of tourists visit the city. What happens when there are many tourists? Everything is trying to get as much money out of them. Strolling, stalls invade the city center where most tourists go every day.

What tourists are most tempted to buy? Of course, memories and objects characteristic of the places they visit. In this case, traditional Romanian objects and clothes. This is the market today, this is #MarketFriday.


Most of them are traditional clothes, a famous shirt called "ie", the most famous fashion item in Romanian folklore. This is a women's blouse with many colors and patterns.




Of course there are traditional clothes for men ...




Shoes worn by Romanian peasants ...


Although it is not a traditional Romanian herb, lavender has begun to be used in our country. I really like how it smell.




Some "Chinese" on any stall ... not missing traditional products made in China. China is everywhere!


People buy almost anything ... to the joy of the sellers. Small houses made of clay.


That was. My tourists have finished touring the stalls ... fortunately without too much damage to my wallet!


As work and walk as objects seen ... it is hard and we were made hungry. We found a small bistro for a snack. Unfortunately, I almost always forget to take the picture before I start eating. Probably because the hunger was so great, I could eat a horse but I was pleased with a pie. The traditional Romanian pie called "poale in brau"




This is for #MarketFriday, a challenge proposed by @dswigle.


Thank you!
I made this post with passion, effort and respect for you. I hope the result proves it.

Markets are the local hub for art and crafts, fresh local vegetables and a great place to meet up with the people . Great photos, I loved reading your post, it’s the next best thing to actually visiting there myself. Blessings From the other side of the world.

Thank you very much! I'm glad the world has another side ...

Haha did you think it is flat! I'm wondering the person selling essential oils was that a local brand or one we know? I guess they make their own lavender oil seeing as it grows there.

Lavender products were local products made in small family businesses.

Great to hear, would love to try

Well, the products are hard to obtain because they are made in small quantities for the local market.

I can imagine, when I travel I like to get local essential oils from places I visit. Maybe I'll get there one day

Yes, who knows?

Great market pictures! Where I live market's such as this have been overcome by shopping malls, which are far less lively and colourful.

I love the clothing! I'd actually love to have a set of those shirts and vests. Very striking! Thanks for sharing!

With pleasure! And we have malls but there are still these markets ...

Its such a beautiful and well put together market!

I'm glad you like it, thank you!

Lavender is grown here and is popular for soaps and detergents.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Yes of course. The country of lavender seems to be France.

A very interesting market @bluemoon Great photos of many items I think I'd find hard to resist. The traditional costumes are absolutely amazing with their intricate embroidery.

Thank you! Popular costumes are one of the attractions of Romania and other Balkan countries.

I to love to visit markets whenI visit a city they give a real eel especially if it is not a tourist orientated market

Thank for sharing this one it looks such a cool market to explore

Thank you!

MOst welcome and have a good week ahead

Thank you! It will be a special week.

Good :)

It is always a pleasure to see the Romanian culture through your posts. I must be a good tourist, I do love the ladies blouses, although more for the light cotton feel than for the looks. The hand embroidered ones are lovely, but so many are machine done nowadays and spoils the effect for me.

We have gone the way of making it fast and cheap in some cases. Usually, in these markets, they still hold on to the old ways. I want to thank you for taking the time to show off all the little houses - that is certainly an art to be done in clay!

The traditional shoes I have seen many of the countries around Romania wore similar shoes, so they must be comfortable. I always like to see the Palace of Culture. An amazing piece of architecture.

Thank you for being a part of #MarketFriday! As always, have a beautiful day!

Thank you! You've noticed very well, these shirts are machine-made. The true ones, over a hundred years old, are in museums. There are old women who are still working on these shirts manually but they are getting fewer and disappear slowly.

You never know what you can find in such markets, it is always fun to discover something new I guess.
The small houses of clay, how nice they are.

I also liked those houses, thank you for reading the post.
