These bazaars are the centers for transaction of local products and goods as well as the place of social interactions and regulating social relations of people especially in rural and tribal areas. These bazaars, which reflect the local economic and cultural conditions of the region, are held in many urban, rural, and tribal areas.
The weekly bazaars in rural and tribal areas are held close to summer quarters regarding season, decampment time, and economic needs of the villagers and nomads. In these kinds of bazaars, the daily needs of people are secured through cash, credit, barter, or conventional transactions. At present, in some northern provinces including Gilan, Mazandaran, and Golestan, rural weekly bazaars are very common. Also, in southern coastal provinces of the country including Sistan and Baluchistan, Hormozgan, Boushehr, and Khuzestan, these kinds of bazaars are common and are amongst the attractions of these provinces. The weekly bazaars of nomad tribes are held in all tribal regions of Iran including in Azarbaijan, Lorestan, and Kurdistan. The daily bazaars of urban, rural, and tribal regions are the places in which the artistic and creative ability of women are reflected through supplying their fine handicrafts. Visiting these bazaars and purchase of different handicrafts, will be an unforgettable memoir for tourists.
