We've seen the signs for the Fruit and Vegetable market, but we we're told they were commercial markets. Then we met someone who had been there, and our life changed! A guy Chris works with goes often and told Chris the ins and outs of shopping there. So we went ... quite an experience! A man with a wheelbarrow wordlessly follows you around, gathering your packages of fruits and vegetables as you shop, then places them in your car as you give him a tip. The first time we probably over-bought - see pictures below! We have learned what is a good buy, what will most likely be over ripe, how to watch that they don't hand you a different product than what they had you taste. They love little children - so it helps to have a few with pony tails and dresses. And often the price lowers as you walk away. At first I was not a fan - we came home with more fruit flies than fruits! Then we started keeping the food in the fridge (what a smart guy my hubby is!) and so far so good - no fruit flies! Now we (or Chris - I'm not a huge fan of the heat right now) go a few times a month and feast of fruit for a few days before it turns. And we have become big fans of juicing!
