My passion for open markets is definitely not a secret, so could I miss such a temptation in Tehran? Of course not.
Wandering the streets of the Iranian capital I stumbled on many mouthwatering sweets shops, countless nuts stands and one of those local markets that give the idea of fresh produce just arrived from the countryside.
I adore dawdling about such places, it feels like soaking up in the country’s social norms and daily routine, it feels like integrating in the hosting society and identifying with the locals, and this is precisely why I try to never miss visiting such markets anywhere I go.
