Wet Market. Get Your Vege On.

Vendor stall.

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.

Fruit stall.

Mushrooms.

More 'shrooms.

Fresh bamboo.

Eggplants and bitter melon.

More vegetables.

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.

  1. Oh my goodness, those fruits and vegetables look so fresh and yummy! Way better than at the grocery store here. Sorry the fruits are so expensive! I guess it is just another fun adventure.
