Did I spell that correctly? Vege or veg, vegetable, veggies. [My brain is fried from writing a talk for Church.] Today, The Circus and I stopped by the local wet market. It’s a farmer’s market, with fruits and vegetables sold by vendors, selling the same produce, competing side by side.
Vegetables here are affordable. For about 15RMB ($2.30USD total. Take that, Santa Monica Farmer’s Market.) I purchased: 1 large piece of ginger root, 4 large potatoes, 2 large sweet potatoes, 2 bunches of leafy greens and a bowl of shitakes. Fruit, however, costs an arm and a leg. A white peach costs 28RMB per every 500 grams. [I know, sorry, you'll have to convert that one yourself.] Cherries, grapes, strawberries, plums and peaches are also extremely expensive. Instead, we eat a lot of oranges, bananas, apples and pineapples. Oh, how we miss Costco’s blueberries, cherries, grapes and strawberries!
I had the entire Circus with me, so we left right after paying. Next time, I’ll try to capture a shot of the eggs stall and butcher shop.
