All in a pile.

(ေအာက္မွာျမန္မာလိုပါေသးတယ္ေနာ္) At the end of the day it all ends up in a pile, a sack, a basket and gets transported away to landfill. I have to say the streets are impressively clean in the downtown area; the official and unofficial waste collectors do…

At the end of the day.

(ေအာက္မွာျမန္မာလိုပါေသးတယ္ေနာ္) Behind the scenes. Yangon is a big city, the markets are huge, and every day great loads of produce come in from the surrounding countryside. By evening, there are waste piles by every stall. Mixed organic and non-organic, all headed for landfill. /Jenny…

Just the basics.

Basic. Beautiful. /Jenny #someonecares #bokashimyanmar #yangonmarkets

Setting up shop

(ေအာက္မွာျမန္မာလိုပါေသးတယ္ေနာ္ ) Setting up shop here doesn’t seem to be so be so hard. A cloth on the ground and a truckload of veggies brought in from the farm. But there’s a lot of competition, these markets in Yangon are big! And at the…

Fish for dinner!

(ေအာက္မွာျမန္မာလိုပါေသးတယ္ေနာ္ ) Some scenes from the Yangon markets. They’re hot and noisy and full of people buying, selling, talking, shouting, laughing and working hard. Turn the sound on!

And after the sugarcane juice…?

(😊ေအာက္မွာျမန္မာလိုပါေသးတယ္ေနာ္ ) Sugar cane juice! So damn nice on a hot day. But the leftovers, where do they end up? Taken off to the tip, I assume. Which is a pity, we could make great bokashi from them. And one day we will!

Beautiful Yangon flowers

(😊ေအာက္မွာျမန္မာလိုပါေသးတယ္ေနာ္ 😊😊) Yangon markets! So many beautiful flowers. But even they have their time, and when they’re no longer fresh and lovely we could at least make bokashi of them and return them to the soil.

Markets in Myanmar!
