Fresh Vegetables

Yesterday,I went to traditional market to buy some vegetables and the other things to cook.And I buy a lot of vegetables because they are very fresh and more cheaper than supermarket.
But of course the place have no air condition like supermarket,it is hot and not clean as supermarket.
But sometimes if I want to buy a lot of food,I prefer go to there for the more saving reason,and I can find a lot of fresh vegetables and meat available at there.
Who are you like me to traditional market too ?
