Northern Burkina Faso African Markets
In West Africa, certain villages have markets that "assemble" at regular intervals, such as weekly or every three days.  People from villages around the region converge on the town of Djibo in northern Burkina Faso every Wednesday to buy and sell food, livestock, and other goods and services.  Here women, arrive in Djibo on foot, carrying their wares on their heads in traditional African fashion.
