Well, i goto the market very frequently , and there's not a single day in my life when i don't need to goto the market to buy something. Its really cool for me as while goto the market i do some walking which is good for me and also meet some people regularly which keeps my mind fresh. So how oftenly you goto the Market to buy something...??? Share your thoughs...

Do you means the market is supermarket? In my opinion,i think nowadays more and more people prefer to go to market to shopping or only for a walk.I seldom go to market by oneself.When i at home at summer holiday or winter holiday,i often go to supermarket wity my mother and my younger sister to by little things and walk after dinner.The biggest supermarket in my country is near my family,so i can go there by foot with few minites.Every evening the people in the market are so many.It is hard for you to shopping with a shopping go-cart very quickly.I don't relize that till recent years.Even some young couples prefer to buy food in the supermarket.In my country,most of the old people buy food in the special market.When at school,i seldom to go shopping in the market.I think it is too far for me,though we can take bus to there only by ten minites.I am so lazy.but many of my classmates love to go to supermarket.everytime they buy many thing when come back. I think whatever supermarket is convenient for people.

We go to the grocery store or market about twice per month. I hate shopping and traveling. I try to buy things in quantities to make it last longer and make less trips for us since the stores are 15 miles from us. I try to stock up on things too because I hate to run out of stuff.

If you go to the market daily you can save also, on the other hand you spend more also whichever way you like. If you buy vegetables etc daily you buy according to what is necessary for the day and you can save. But on the other hand if you look at other things there and cannot stop yourself from buying them, then it makes you spend more. But here you say that you can make friends there. I go to the shops only twice. In the weekends I collect almost everything I want for the week. Inbetween if I need some vegetables I go. that's all.

Well, now I can understand why most of the mylotters just go only twice or less in week,,, I just go there to have fun, and my mom usually go there to buy some vegetables if needed, although I just go there for friends and to buy some daily stuffs,,,nothing else.. Thanks for being here

Nowadays I have stopped even that twice a week, only once a week. That seems to be enough. We, my husband and I are the only ones at home. So nothing special to cook. I have got a person to get me vegetables every other day. So I do not have to go to the market every week... This seems easier for me too... not tiring on week days..

I go to the market twice a weeek. I go to the market every weekend to buy most of the things I'll be needing for the week and go again by midweek to buy fresh vegetables, fruits and other things I wasn't able to buy during the weekend. I usually go to the market and do groceries myself because I like to personally choose the foods I'm going to buy.

Not very often but I go to the market just the same. I just go by to drop some veggies if I have more time to roam around that place. Going to the market in my place is like spending more time than going to the nearby mall. It's nice to go to the market really, walking is a healthy habit and a hobby. Good for you.

I usually go to the market twice a week. In some cases where there is something that is needed unexpectedly then I will go. Like you, I also walk since the market is very near in our area.

I will go to the market perhaps once a week. Since usually I have to go to work, so I don't buy food and make a dinner at night. I will go to the market in weekends because I like cooking in weekends when I don't have to work.

I go to the grocery store pretty much every day. My husband is hard to plan dinner for ahead of time. I kind of have to see what he's in the mood for. I buy a lot of ground beef and sometimes it goes bad if no ones in the mood for it so I just wait and shop according to everyone's mood.

I live in Canada and where I live the winters are very harsh. This year we also had a lot of snow so it is hard to walk. So in the winter I try to go to the supermarket once a week and get my food for the week. If I need anything else I take the bus to an indoor mall. As soon as the weather is nicer I walk to the supermarket every second day or so. Walking is good exercise for me. In the summer I go to an open air farmer's market with my son, usually on Sundays. There we can buy locally grown vegetables, fruits, baked goods and some frozen meat. I love those excusions because everything is so fresh.

I absolutely love markets, my nan used to take me to them regularly, bless her thats a big thing I miss now she is not here no more. But where I live the market here is really awful and there are hardly any stalls, the people are not too friendly either like in some places.

Yeah mnsrwt, the local market here is the regular place which I like to visit. The market is quite close to my house. It is within a distance of less than a kilometer. My husband and I normally go there on foot in the morning. It is quite an interesting place as we could find lots of stores there selling varieties of local products. I like chatting with friends when we come upon any there. We then would take our breakfast at the food stores there which supply various types of delicious food. I consider marketing in the morning as a form of physical exercise and social activity.

Hello,mnsrwt`123, I try to go as less as possible try to go at least 2 or 3 times a month. I live in the country, and, you just can't walk. But like you said it is good to walk, and meet people, but where I live everything is so far away, so that's the reason I go as less as possible. Thanks popciclecold
