From my first floor corridor-balcony at the 'Vegetable Market Association Motel' I got a point of view on the market's 24 hour activity.
Night - Trucks pull up and align along the road in front to be unloaded in a cue. The porters and drivers, coming on long rides would sleep on the the tarp covering the vegies in the back until their turn comes.
Early morning - The local delivery buzz begins. The Meen Bodi Vandi operators (An improvised type of motorized tricycle, goods carrier) park at front and carry loads of huge sacks and towers of crates from the market at the back.
Daytime - Shoppers carry bags full of produce out.
