Sample Essay on A Day at the Market

Friday evening, my father asked me whether I would like to go with him to the Market on Saturday morning. I instantly said yes.

The next day morning, my father took a few shopping bags and gave me also a cloth bag. My mom gave him a list of items to be purchased. The Market was about 10 minutes from our home. Dad and I went there walking.

Visit to a Market

I saw vendors shouting out various vegetable names and fruit names with the prices. First, we visited a vegetable vendor and bought half a kilo of okra, some tomatoes, some beans, and some carrots. My father gave him Rs 200. I was counting in my head how much balance dad would get. Ideally, he was supposed to get Rs 50 back. Instead he got Rs 100 back. My dad was on a call, so he perhaps didn't realize. I asked him how you got Rs 100 back. Dad also pondered, and then he told the shopkeeper about the wrong balance he gave. Dad gave me a pat on my back.

Next, we went to the fruit seller. The mangoes looked so tempting. He had many fruits, which also included apples, two to three types of bananas, watermelon, guavas, Jamun, litchi and jackfruit. Dad bought a few mangoes and bananas.

Then we went to the fish seller. I saw small, big and medium fish. Some were in a round container with water. That place stunk. I covered my nose. However, I love eating fried fish. I don't recollect the name, but dad bought one kilo of fish.

Finally, we visited a grocery store. Dad takes out the list that mom gave them. He checks and tells me also to check whether all the things have been bought or not. From the grocery shop, he buys a few biscuits and two packets of milk. Dad tells me to keep it in my bag. I was happy to carry them.
