I love markets, I love to walk though the stalls, to look for fun things or things I need. I can spend hours walking around big markets everywhere in the world. This year this has been a recurrent and nice walk, the one we are allowed to do to and through the neighbourhood market.

From May through October I love to buy local & seasonal foods at nearby farmers' markets. It's great to be able to walk or bike to a market any day of the week to pick up fresh and tasty ingredients for a meal. As a project for the Folio Focus group, I've mapped out my favourite westend markets for each day of the week as a reference guide.

Frankfurt has a long tradition of selling fresh products on the streets. There have been farmers' markets in Frankfurt since the 12th century. The map shows six of the overall 20 farmers' markets, which exist in the city of Frankfurt nowadays. Each district has its own one an a particular day of the week from Tuesday to Saturday.
Montreal, Quebec, CA
In front of Nurnberg Hauptmarkt, everything is happening. Fresh fruits and vegetables are waiting for people to take them home. Couples are taking walks, people enjoy their free day. I had a fresh German beer and a bite of tasty Nurnberg Bratwurste. What a wonderful day!

My family has been vacationing in Charleston for many years. There is so much history, good food, beautiful architecture... and the beach! It would be nearly impossible to map ALL the places that are special to me, but this map showcases some of my favorites.
Seattle truly is a wonderland of musical history. While some of the most famous artists in the industry call this city home, such as Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, all the greats have had the chance to perform in only the coolest, hippest venues.

Alternative rock, hardcore punk, heavy metal, indie rock, and of course...grunge music make the Seattle sound unlike any other.
