Markets

Markets are as old as the crossroads, a mashup of conversations and commerce embedded in the 360 degree, face-to-face exchange.

Our fave (favorite/favourite) markets are a combination of tasting rooms and empathy museums. These venues manifest responsible travel — good places to live and good places to visit. Locals have the chance to meetup on a regular or semi-regular basis and newcomers have an opportunity to immerse themselves in local culture.

Curiously, while local markets are key in economic and social terms, they are often taken for granted. Tourism officials and guidebook writers talk up places of interest, rather than the people to meet.

In 2019 we spotlight markets during our annual Responsible Travel Week. We would like to share some practical tips of where to go, who to visit and how to connect locals and visitors on the social web.
