Izmail Market 22

Today markets and bazaars are not very popular – they have been practically replaced by indoor markets, malls, super- and hypermarts. But in one of the Southern Ukrainian towns called Izmail there is a true bazaar of the beaten path. Everything here is like tens of years ago – it seems that you can’t find here even a single modern thing!

    I want the giant rabbit! Hop hop hop…

    Testicules – you’re right. At least, I’ve seen that man holding the duck on this site before. I remember that face.

  4. Rabbit says:

    A big fat rabbit in starving Ukraine and none has eaten him yet?

  5. RAB says:

    OK but I missed this one the first time don’t forget its the real Russia we want to see and for that they do a great job especially because they post almost every day.

    If I had to sweep with one of those brooms that would kill my back,don’t they have any sticks to make handles?

    Vegetables okay. Just say no to outdoor meat/poultry/fish.

  7. real food says:

    Nothing modern? Everything pictured is quite new. Even the rabbit is a 2008 model.

    Oh, I get it. In order to be food, it has to come in a can, box or mylar pouch with all kind of crazy graphics printed on it. I see.
