Market Shortage

The Muntok City is reported as a city that is different from other cities. Whereas other cities usually have many markets, including one in every village, in Muntok City there is none. Muntok City only has one market in town. Everybody from all over Muntok City will go to this market to sell their farm products as well as buy daily necessities. The people of this city also don't use baskets when going to the market, rather they use a container called sarau. This container has three straps: one to be attached to their forehead, and the rest is attached between their arms and shoulders.
