This week, we passed through the Bourda Market, one of the busiest and most popular vending spots in Guyana.

The market is open 24/7 on the outer sections where a variety of perishable and non-perishable goods are sold. The inner section of the market is usually open from morning time until 5 pm in the afternoon with an earlier closure on Sundays.
