The Market of Izmail

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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.
