Traditional markets are market places where you can buy almost anything from groceries, foods, fish, meat and many other basic needs for your daily needs. At the traditional markets prices are not labeled but prices from one seller to another for the same product or produce are more or less the same. However, haggling over prices is still necessary. Some sellers usually give you higher prices at the beginning. If you don't ask to get the price down, you will pay a higher price for the things you want to buy.
