Although there were not many stores in the Kanoman market, it did not mean that there were none at all. I didn't know if they didn't want to be in a crowded place, or if they were confident that customers would come even if they set up a store in a secluded place, but there were some people who open their stores in the inside of abandoned buildings. The grocery store in this photo was one such store.
It was the only one doing business in the area, even though there were large counters around this grocery store, and the vegetables were laid out on the counter as if to make up for the loneliness around it. I could see brightly colored peppers and tomatoes for sale. The space was a stark contrast to the dim, monotone world around the store.
The woman herself, who was selling vegetables such as chili peppers and tomatoes in bright primary colors, was wearing a bright hijab as she worked. Sitting on a chair next to a table, the woman was wearing a red hijab and was silently peeling garlic. She didn't care if a man walked right past her, and continued to work silently in the quiet space.
