The marketplace

A place for everything

Marketplaces in Ivory Coast are full of colour, noise and smells.

As explained in the video, women come here to do their shopping. So many foodstuffs are here, such as aubergines, tomatoes, potatoes, cassava, dried fish and live chickens.

You can also buy rubber – it looks strange, but it's used for making shoes, car parts and much more.
