Exotic Markets and a Big Thank You!

by Sarah on July 3, 2011

Levinsky Spice Market in Tel Aviv

So in my introverted way I launched my new site, Exotic Markets, without much fuss or commotion and let it roll along.

But that wouldn’t be fair. I would like to bring out the banners, flags and marching bands and with great fanfare officially introduce Exotic Markets, a gallery of market photographs from all over the world. Most of all I want to thank the many of you for your support and enthusiasm, without which this site would not exist.

Special thanks to the very first who submitted photographs, you are awesome! (I have not listed everyone who submitted or gave me permission to post their photographs but my thanks extends to them as well, thank you!)

Thanks also to Miriam Kresh and Chanita Harel for writing about the site on their blogs.

What market would I like to visit? That’s a hard question. I have discovered so many fantastic markets since beginning this site that it is almost impossible to decide. Here are a few that piqued my interest:

Maeklong Market Railway

The Markets of France

Kingsland Market in Calgary looks like fun

The biggest market of Africa in Addis Abba, Ethiopia and the markets of Peru

Exotic Morocco has always been on my list

As the website expands with more pictures I hope it can be used by travelers who want to find interesting places to visit. Or perhaps those looking for a local market near them. So on your next market trip, take the camera and add your own picture to the Exotic Markets of the world.
