Santa Cruz Fish Mar­ket, Puerto Ay­ora, Gala­pa­gos, Ecuador

Vacations & Travel - - Global Markets -

What the Santa Cruz Fish Mar­ket lacks in size – the en­tirety of the mar­ket con­sists of lit­tle more than three large work­benches and an over­head canopy – it more than makes up for in per­son­al­ity. This may be the only mar­ket in the world where mer­chants work side-by-side with sea lions, boo­bies, and pel­i­cans, while mag­nif­i­cent fri­gate birds soar over­head. The an­i­mals are, of course, look­ing to col­lect scraps from the fish mon­gers’ knife, and you’ll be amazed at how well-be­haved they ap­pear to be (aren’t we all, when it comes to food?).
