The market is where often the locals can find the best produce of the day. Independent vendors sit and work on their stall, enticing customers to buy from them. However, it seemed that not only the locals are interested in stepping on the marketplace, but tourists as well. Travelers themselves would like to see the commercial center of a city or a town to know the culture of the area.

Here are five of the best marketplaces in the world.

Tsukiji Fish Market, Japan. It's the largest fish market in the whole world and tourists would like to it with their own eyes. Bustling fish vendors are seen preparing their catch and sell other marine products to the locals. At around 5am, a tuna auction is held to those who want to see the action. 

Marrakech, Morocco. Exotic wares like jeweled tapestries and handcrafts are found in the narrow streets of Marrakech. Colorful arts and works of Moroccan culture are heavily printed on every product. Since the market is a series of connected market alleys, different items for sale are available in every nook and turn. Bread and spices are lined in one street while clothing and accessories can be found on the other.

Mercado la Merced, Mexico. This is a 150-year-old market where an array of food and spices are displayed in the stalls. The building complex is mostly dominated by fruits and vegetables. However, different wares like spoon and fork are also available. Mexican spices like chili peppers and epazote and another foodstuff like pork and mushrooms are also lined up. You can find Mexico's authentic Oaxaca cheese here too.

Camden Lock Market, London. This is considered as London's artisan creativity and trading, and it's easy to see why. According to Camden Market, the place is packed to the gunnels with stalls trading in handmade clothes and jewelry, music memorabilia, objects from ages past and authentic food from far-flung locations. Tons of souvenirs can be found here if any tourists would like some unique items to take home with them. 

Egyptian Spice Bazaar, Istanbul. Different kinds of spices are available here: cloves, cumin, cayenne powder, mace, loomi, you name it. There are also several of accessories and trinkets as souvenirs but it's the Turkish delights, olives and cheese people would want to have.
