Saud is how we refer to market day in our town. Held twice weekly every Saturday and Wednesday at the plaza (public market), these events always have the feel of a weekend market rural style where every kind of merchandise appear from villages and nearby towns and provinces. Some are just plain utilitarian while some are simply kitch. From farm tools to folk remedies on common ailments, condiments, local vegetables and fruits and ukay-ukay (second-hand clothes) are to be found in separate corners of the plaza grounds that occupy the streets fronting the public market.
Here are some of my snaps during my two consecutive saud visits.
