Street Market in Bombay, India

 Viewed by many as the heart of a city, street markets continue to thrive as a place of social interaction and necessary economic activity in cities across the globe. A crossroads of farmers, craftsmen, artisans, and consumers alike, the all-in-one nature of the street market mimcs that of the "Big Box Superstore," but retains an intensely local nature and environment which cannot be found within the asiles of mega market.
