Lambadi women at Jayanagar 9th Block market

....

These are not "costumes" but the actual clothes that these women wear every day...so colourful and beautiful! Look at their jewellery (including the multiple armbands on one of them  and the waist decoration on another)  , and the "joothi"s that one woman is wearing.

The vegetables are: top row, a variety of beans that I have seen only in India. we call it Avaraikkai, plantain tree stems (they are delicious!), cabbages; middle row:  tomatoes, another variety of  beans,  and you can see some cucumbers between the women's heads; lower row: okra and brinjal (eggplant or aubergine), and radishes in the red container on the ground.
