The day Tuyi went to the orchard was the market day of Omi-Adio village. On market days, almost all the people of the village usually go to the market Those who felt like not going to the market stayed at home No villager ever went to the farm to work on a market day That was why there was no farm to work on a market day. That was why there was no farmer in any of the farms in the bush to come to Tuyi's help.
Market days were fun or rest days for the farmer. Most villages under Awo-Ekiti town had market days. A market day is a particular day of the week on which farmers or villagers take their farm produce to the market to sell to buyers
