Suakoko Market

The best way I know to become acquainted with a place is to take a stroll through the market.  During a recent trip to Liberia, I snapped a few photos of scenes which are uncommon treasures to me, while being just everyday life to Liberians.

Enjoy!

 Above is the center road through the Suakoko market in Bong County, Liberia.

This woman was the friend of a friend. She and I bartered for about five minutes before I purchased a very fine lappa from her stand.

This young one was also selling lappas in an uncovered stand. I bartered with two of her older sisters to purchase more lappas.

This young boy walked around the market selling bags filled with different juices.
