Fashion and Shopping
Fairs and markets have a long history that started when humans felt the desire to exchange goods and services. People would shop for goods at a weekly market in nearby towns. Then shops began to be permanently established. Shops were specialized, e.g. a bakery, a butchery, a grocer. Eventually stores became gathered together in shopping centers, supermarkets or even department stores. In ancient Rome, there was Trajan’s Market with tabernae that served as retailing units. Shopping lists are known to be used by Romans as one was discovered by Hadrian’s wall dated back to 75–125 AD and written for a soldier. For many, like us, shopping is a fun thing to do when traveling. We will add to this list as we find good places.
