Photos: Students explore open air market

Our group is lucky enough to be staying right down the street from a local gem: an open air market.

The market runs every Saturday, and offers goods ranging from household products and clothing to fresh fruit and fish. The market scene was overwhelming—with customers clogging the streets and vendors yelling encouragements to purchase their products.

Amid the hectic atmosphere of the market, I was able to snag a box of strawberries for 2.50 euro, which ended up being delicious. I’m hoping to go back to the market again before we leave to pick up some more fruits and veggies.
