Market Friday Doesn't Go Shopping

in #marektfriday10 months ago (edited)

Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) I hope you will join me as we share different markets across the globe. I find it one of my greatest pleasures on the platform, mixing our cultures and our lives. Share in the experience of enjoying markets from around the world and different cultures.


Fear has gripped the United States. Not all of us, but, some have taken it to another level. The aisles of empty store shelves and the barely anything there dairy cases give the appearance that we should be alarmed, at the very least. Are we running out of food?? Not even close. This is what I was met with last Friday.

Not a traditional #MarketFriday, but, who doesn't love to be a little bit different? There is no right or wrong here, just what drives you that week. I love to share and be shared with! So, yes! I would love to see yours! Don't forget to take photos wherever you happen to be shopping - whether it be the grocery store, the local marketplace or even an art gallery. Wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise. Be different if you wish! It does not have to be a traditional market! We will love it! I promise you! Don't forget to use the hashtag #MarketFriday and @dswigle.

The perception that they are battling against is that there is a huge shortage of food and will not be able to be supplied. If people hadn't panicked and bought out the stores, perhaps this wouldn't have happened. But, people started hoarding non-perishables right away, giving the probability that shortages and empty shelves were one their way.


Please leave the link to your post on here so it can easily be found by others. They are so much easier to find in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you so much for joining us!! ❤

I am looking at that cheese that is left hanging in the middle door and I am pretty sure if nobody has touched it, it is something I wouldn't want. Desperate times may call for someone to come back and get it though.

Admittedly, I was in an unnamed grocery store, perusing up the aisles for pictures, I had long ago done my food. But, anyway, the only thing left in the bread aisle was Nature Valley Honey Wheat Bread. The rest was empty. Now, I can tell you that even if I ate that stuff, the fact that nobody else would touch it should tell you something, right?

I kid you not. I won't keep posting empty shelves. We all know what it has been looking like. It is dismal. I have all the food I can possibly need and I just know that when we ease up, the supply wagon will be able to give us more. Slow down, it isn't going anywhere. If you need something, go to the store when it opens, Most places stock overnight. If you are over 60, most of the stores are opening the store for two hours, usually, Tuesdays and Thursdays for them to shop without the crowds. Check with your own stores to see if they are doing this.

It is a trying time for many, kids out of school, people out of jobs or working from home. No places to escape to, not even a movie to watch, although the industry is fixing that. But, we will persevere and we will be fine. I want to thank you all for showing up for #MarketFriday and I wish each and every one of you well. Be safe and practice sanitizing and proper handwashing.And still no handshaking. I don't even like elbow bumping. Just bow. No touching.

Lastly, a flower. #alwaysaflower. To color my world. Daffodils are on the menu this week, Everywhere you look, the loveliness is there, it never escapes me. Oh, may I gaze upon you, always and a day?

    they set my aunts house on fire
    i cried the way women on tv do
    folding at the middle
    like a five pound note.
    i called the boy who use to love me
    tried to ‘okay’ my voice
    i said hello
    he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

    i’ve been praying,
    and these are what my prayers look like;
    dear god
    i come from two countries
    one is thirsty
    the other is on fire
    both need water.

    later that night
    i held an atlas in my lap
    ran my fingers across the whole world
    and whispered,
    "where does it hurt?"
    it answered,

    "everywhere"
    "everywhere"
    "everywhere"

I read a news even Amazon suspended grocery delivery due to "high order volumes". For me, attention on the cryptocurrencies market.

I got an Amazon order every day this week, so I have no idea what they are talking about. ;) Some hype, I am sure. At any rate, it is not true. I am hoping I am ready. God help us all.

Perhaps those greedy ones can show their filled pantries and rooms. The rich can afford to buy the rest can drop dead and die?
There's plenty of food but someone needs to fill those shelves. What I do not understand is why shops are accepting this behavior. Because they sell great and do not care?
It's simple.
Four hours open, three hours closed to fill the shelves, one hour open for elderly people only, one hour closed, three hours open and a max if two items.
I see the popcorn is left how come no one bought it? Once stuck home there's a lot of time to kill inside in front if the television. I will see next week if there's something I can afford to buy. I have no freezer and fridge and doubt I'll die for hunger.
I wish you a great day. 💕

I'm actually not sure how to respond to this. It had nothing to do with rich or poor, just the panic that people feel. I doubt I will die of hunger either. :)

Have a great weekend ahead!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Rich(er) can afford to buy a lot. Poor can not. It's as simple as it is. We see the same happen here especially in places where more rich people live. We'll see how this ends.

I'm not rich, but, I can afford to buy it. I send my nieces money so they can buy or send them boxes from Amazon. Being rich doesn't necessarily mean that you are as repugnant as you make them out to be.

I know a lot of people with money that share abundantly.

I hope you are right and I am wrong and this fear will not increase poverty and will bring people closer.

That is my vision and I like to carry hope in my soul.

Thank you for the tip @dswigle

Gosh your supermarkets do have lots go bare shelves. Ours are not as bad but it is sad to see that the panic shopping is not going away.
Thanks for reminding me to go on a #marketfriday trip.

Will people are set in panic mode right now oh, so hopefully when they have full pantries they will calm down. Thank you for stopping by and say hello, leaving your words behind.

I laughed when I read the title of your post !

No... there is no shortage in general and yes, the people are the reason for these empty shelves, that didn't have to be empty.

Maybe the cheese and bread aren't the ones no one would buy, maybe they are just the only ones that came in and were replenished ? Ok... just throwing out another possibility. ;)

Love the daffodil !

Hope you are doing well and staying safe.

XOXOXO

Haha!! The bread was honey wheat and it has never been high on the buying list in this area, but, I cannot see a reason for it.

On the other hand, I can tell you that I like to do my own cheese! Will everything seems all screwed up today on the blockchain oh, but I am so glad that you stopped by to say hello and leave your love behind.

Hi. Although a bit late I still didn't want to miss out on a single Market Friday week. Here's the link here to my post.

I just realized I missed out on the flower at the end of the post so I'll just place it here instead. I hope you don't mind. This is the Maple Flower or Chinese Lantern. My wife bought it a few days ago.

s416mt.png

Oh!! The Chinese lantern!!! How beautiful! I have some, but, the ones I have are orange! I love the colors in yours! Mine came from my great-grandmothers' house. She is no longer alive, but, I carry with me her legacy in flowers.

#alwaysaflower is another tag of mine, and if you don't want to, you don't have to put the flower. People started doing it because I always do and I love it when they do, but, just remember it is not a requirement to be part of #MarketFriday!

Thank you so much!!! It was a real treat to see your flowers!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Funny, I always thought them to be red. Would love to see the ones you have. Maybe in one of your posts you can include them.

I make it a point to include a flower every Market Friday post. I love to do it except that in my last, I was so worried about being late for the submission I just clicked the submit button immediately without the flower photo.

Thanks for the wonderful comments and also the tip. Appreciate them very much.
