The market day is often also THE event in remote villages. Apart from the fact that you can often get much fresher fruit and vegetables here than in the local supermarket, you also get to hear the latest village rumors – or just get to chat with the neighbors over a café con leche. Especially for the elderly people, who don’t leave the village much, the market day is a good opportunity for social contacts.
