Hong Kong Krazies: Wet Market Mania

 In Hong Kong we have grocery stores. They are pretty normal looking (smaller isles, selection, and more asian goods), but still "normal" food shopping. Then there are the markets...almost every area of town has their own wet market... I'm not sure about the name, but I think it comes from the fact that the whole place gets hosed down every night. They are inside markets where you can by everything (usually including the kitchen sink!) :o) The main products are food... fruit, veg, and meat. But there are other random shops selling other random goods... shoes towels, a key maker, flowers, etc.
I have yet to purchase meat from a stall like one of these... but it makes for some good pictures. I do buy lots of fruit and veggies from the markets becuase the selection and price are quite good compared to the store.

To discover discount countertops, consider some stone fabrication outlets that manufacture stones that can come from local quarries. Almost certainly, the transportation costs of those stones will cost much less. Although you did not technically have a discount, you were still capable to cut down its cost.

I was wondering about the smell too. Does it smell really bad or is everything super fresh?!
