Buka market

Buka market is our big town market. It is nowhere near as bit as Kokopo market – just one shelter, although there are areas for certain items, for example, the smoked fish at one end, then as you walk down there is the other cooked food (eg. kaukau, tapiok), then fruit and vegetables and at the other end there is the sort of tourist section where they sell a lot of shell necklaces, baskets and other items.

Lots of things in this picture – you will need to click on it to view it larger if you want to see everything well. Here we have: Aibika (greens), mature coconuts, drinking coconuts, bok choy, cucumbers, tomatoes, Mum’s legs, pawpaw and cooking bananas.

And here is a wider shot of the overall market under the shelter.

A selection of necklaces, earrings and bracelets/armbands:
