Despite the proliferation of many options for potters to market their wares online such as etsy,ebay,blogs and affiliate sites, a  lot of potters still choose to use street markets and the like for selling their products.I would venture to say that one of the original domestic products that was ever sold at markets would be pottery due to their necessity for the transport of water. Throughout the ages potters have served their communities by transforming clay into beautiful and functional wares. Potters, working in their home studios, would bring their pots to town on market day. These days the green movement has also encouraged some people to seek out homewares of a more durable, organic quality.From the travelling kitchen wallas of India, the Baazzars of Morrocco, the weekend farmers markets and antique street stalls the world over, you will still find pottery being well represented. Below is a collection of some of those markets.
