Market friday : Public market

Hope hive friends are always happy. Share the experience of going to the market. To place every sunday in the area especially in the area of West java, many people take advantage of the line to go to an open place for their morning walk.


This opportunity is also used by traders to sell in the open, as been in the open area many traders sell by using two wheeled vehicle, four wheeled vehicles and there are sellers with opening a trade without using roof cover.


I come to this place even though the distance from the house is about 20 kilometers. The traders in this open field start selling from 5,30 am until noon, because these buyers are the people around this place.

The take advantage of the time only until noon around 11 am, after that the traders gradually go home, many goods, food, clothers, drink are offered to buyers, such as meatballs, boiled egg, vermicelli, martabak, grilled saugages egg vermicelli, privide, for drinks for ssle.

The price is adjusted to the economic situation, because this place is quite far from city. The prices are still affordable by the community, some sell food at a price of 10.000,- idr ($0,66) 5000,- idr (0,31), There also a price of 10.000,- idr ($0,66)




There is what I visited at the sales place here, namelly traders selling surabi cakes. Surabi cakes, surabi cakes are traditional snack from the region. Surabi cake are made from rice flour mixed with coconut milk.






Surabi cake molds come from round clay with through thhe manufacturing process. Surabi is sold with a variety of fillings and there is original surabi, salty menu like corned egg surabi at a price 8.000,- idr ($0,53) or surabi oncom eggs at a price of 7000,- idr, surabi sosis egg 8000,- . Sweet menus like milk cheese surabi 7000,-,idr ( 0,46).
Thank you #marketfriday by @dswigle as host.
Thank you very much for your attention.


The market is pretty large for being in a rural area of West Java! 20 Km is pretty far for you to travel. Does it make it worth it with the savings? This is a nice setup for those selling out in the open like that and a good way to save a little bit of money.

I like how he makes the Surabi cake and the variety of fillings they have. This was a fun market to go to. Thank you for taking us!

#MarketFriday began as a way to reach out across the globe and learn about different cultures through their markets, especially local markets and farmers' markets, and eventually branched out and evolved over time from straight shopping to a cultural affair as it highlights how we differ and then again, how much we are alike. We have become a melting pot of culture, but it is still the Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, and even your language/languages that separate us... Along with the fact that these things are normal for us. There are unwritten rules that rule our social behaviors. I see this as allowing for increased tolerance between cultures and nations, and opportunities to come together on an even playing ground. A strong culture can be beneficial to a country as it promotes unity, especially during a crisis, peaceful debate, and open dialogue. I have learned so much about all of you and it has been an amazing experience. I can only hope that learning about each other can help us work together for a peaceful world.

Thank you for being a part of #MarketFriday
