    market stalls

    From BBC NEWS | Europe | Georgia facing reality of defeat

    They often get along fine when they have a chance to engage in low-level meetings arranged by foreign organisations or across market stalls.

    In the sentence above, what does "market stalls" mean?

    Re: market stalls

    Metaphorically, that various bodies/organizations have different options on offer.

    Hello BobK,

    There's a saying here in Brazil that means something like that. A picture worth more than a thousand of words.
    But I understood what Anglika meant.

    Thank you.
