Kashgar livestock market


Kashgar livestock market is only open on Sundays and the new market was moved to western suburbs of Kashgar. In the morning, the market was crowded with Uyghur sellers and buyers as well as thousands of animals including cattle, sheep, donkeys, horses, camels, goats, and yaks. Mother is the market, Father is the market, so let market decide.” So say the local farmers. We have a very rich market Culture in Xinjiang where fair trade is important. So we go to bazaar to sell and buy what we need. In market there is a middle man called the ‘salachi’ in Uighur. They are very knowledgeable about local business and help the buyer and seller reach an agreement following the correct rules, Usually they are respected and elder members of the community.
