The floating guava market represents the riverine lifestyle of rural Bangla

The floating guava market at Bhimruli over Kirtipasha canal in Jhalokathi - is simple eye-soothing. Origin of this floating market is unknown, but it is a hundred-year old tradition. 

In beautiful blue water of the canal, farmers carry the guavas onto the boats from the river-adjacent orchards. Hundreds of boats filled with guava gather here and all the trades occur on boats. Farmers also pluck the guavas from their boats. 

Farmers in Southern region of Bangladesh, heavily rely on guava farming, and the floating guava market.
