Fruit & Veg

Piñas

There is an outdoor farmers market in Liberia. It seems to get going about mid-afternoon and run into the evening. There was every kind of edible tropical plant, plus eggs, queso fresco, breads and I don't know what.

It's all very inexpensive - to us. The pineapples above were about US$ 2 each. Limes had strange skins that would put off American shoppers, although we never saw one like these in a cocktail. I'm less certain about the next two. Maybe casava root, followed by red potatoes and a kind of squash, or maybe something else altogether. The lush fruit at the bottom is mango.

Might Be Casava

The guava looks a lot like mango! You're making me hungry at breakfast!

I have not been to the farmer's market in Liberia. Once again you have visited places that I will need to check out.

I'd say the veggies in the middle photos are yam and sweet potato.
