This market picture is just one of a typical market here in Abidjan.  I love the colors and the vibrancy that come from the market but I could do without the smell.  There are endless fruits and veggies, (many are so different than the ones I am used to seeing at home) animals, meat, fabric, some jewelry, and other random ingredients that they use frequently like hot spices and peanut sauce.  It is a place where people come together and live life together and I love that about the market.
