It is obvious that in the region towns, mostly Saturday is market day. Tourists find the open air market of south omo very impressive & strange because of the different crafts, cereals & vegetables. Cultural souvenirs, bargaining style of the local people. Different nation’s nationalities observed in the market while they are making intricately the different baskets & adorning them with d/f colored animals skin.
