Back Porch Market

The local market is about 15 minutes walk from your house, or you might have to get on a pehnpehn to get to the big market. However, if you need something quickly and don’t have time to make the market trip, there is always the neighborhood lady with her table market and all the small-small things you need.

Check out this back porch market of a lady in a Duport Road neighborhood in mid 2018. The prices below are in Liberian Dollars (LD) and most items cost 5 LD. Circa June 2018, $1 US was equivalent to about $145 LD. Vegetables are laid out in piles, and items like mayonnaise and butter are manually packaged into small portions. For a quick meal or some dry rice, there are many possibilities on this table.
