The umbrella was moving among the shoppers in Bailan Market

I was walking with the locals on the street of the Bailan Market, where the shops are lined up. According to Google Maps, this market seems to fall into the category of "traditional market". Sure, it's a collection of small shops and the products are sold face-to-face, so maybe it's appropriate to call it that. However, on the other hand, I'm wondering what kind of a non-traditional market we are talking about. Is it simply something like a supermarket? I wonder.

Even though it was mid-morning, the sunshine was already quite strong. All the shops were stretching out their eaves tents towards the street. And there were big shadows on the street. The sun was shining only on the middle of the road. As I looked at the road, which was a mixture of sun and shade, a woman appeared in the middle of it, holding an umbrella. Even though the woman was walking in the middle of the market, she didn't seem to be interested in what was being sold here. She was walking swiftly through the sunshine that had formed in the middle of the road.
