What comes to your mind when you hear traditional markets? Many people have opinion that traditional markets are crowded, muddy, and hot places. Even though they seem like that, there are still many who like to visit traditional markets because they can find food or goods that are difficult to find in modern markets, for example, traditional snacks.

A traditional market is a place where sellers and buyers meet directly who carry out a buying and selling transaction. The prices of goods are relatively cheap, you can bargain, and the types of goods are varied, making many people still buy their daily needs in traditional markets.

In my country Indonesia, traditional markets are scattered in many places. Not only in rural areas, but in sub-urban to urban areas, traditional markets are still easy to find.

Traditional and modern markets have some quite striking differences. Especially in terms of buildings and buying and selling activities in them.

Traditional markets are buildings owned by local government or private sector, and management is also from the local government or the private sector. In order to be orderly and orderly, traditional markets are generally managed by local governments or private entities that have received management permits from government.

Most prominent difference in traditional markets is existence of bargaining on transactions between sellers and buyers to get best price. Of course, you can't do this in the modern market.

In the traditional market there are many businesses mixed into one. Starting from grocery stores, shops that sell glassware, clothing stores, clothing stores and so on. Usually, goods circulating in traditional markets are mostly the result of producers and local communities.
