About 10 minutes away from where athletes are competing for gold, sits a small burrow called Adler that's bringing home the gold in a much different way.

The colors, the sights and the sounds are home for those who come to the market from nearby communities.

An area veteran proudly tells us he sells the best local peaches.

Everyone seems eager to share their product in hopes of making a sell and put of custom.

A little further down the water flows for the fresh flowers available that leave the space smelling of roses.

Everyone has a trade or a craft that with a price tag and a smile seem to reward hard work. This woman sells honey and asked me try it and then gives the Americana gift honey made at home.

Tuna can be bought on the spot along with Armenian Bread at the local bakery, where you can also find deserts like Baklava. It's long before the flavor of this place has your mouth watering and your heart wanting more.

And this seems to be just one of those beautiful days at the market far from America but not far from the comforts of home if you choose to walk in.
