To market, to market

Photography is technically not allowed in Almaty’s Green Bazaar, so this collection of photographs was taken with my iphone as I pretended to text or check my email (hence the awkward angles). You’ll notice that a few watchful market patrons are on to me. You’ll also notice that the vast majority of market business owners are women, and that the variety of produce available (in the summer, anyway) is astonishing. The market, Almaty’s largest, is open Tuesday through Sunday.
