You might think that after having experienced marketplaces in India and Bhutan that a marketplace in America would be no big deal, but Tampa might prove you wrong. A big part of the reason what that is the case has to do with the fact that Tampa actually has some of the most exotic marketplaces in the world. Now, the people of this city, and in fact that country in general, aren’t known for their use of spices so you shouldn’t expect to find anything of that sort. You probably won’t find any truly great fabrics either since the people of this strange country tend to buy these things from large stores where all of the clothes look the same!
Curious as all of this may be, it doesn’t change the fact that Tampa marketplaces do have a few interesting things that you could look into. For example, they have odd little hats that used to be worn by cattle rustlers and the like, which a lot of people refer to as “cowboy hats”, that you might want to buy. Now, these hats are obviously not going to be useful at all. In fact, they are quite impractical for people that don’t raise cows for a living. But it can still be a nice little souvenir that you can give to someone to show them how much you care about them at any given point in time!
The thing about Tampa is that it’s marketplaces are really underrated. You can find truly American things like cheese burgers and other items that would remind you that you are in the land of the free! You need to go to a marketplace in this city right away.
