I love visiting the local market which happens to be very close to the hostel where we are living.
The ladies love to see us wander around the fruit and vegetable aisles and smile when they see us coming.
Our limited Spanish can be very interesting at times but we seem to be fairly successful when it comes to interacting with them and making our purchases. While sometimes we are unsure if they are charging more because we are foreigners, for the most part, the prices are very reasonable particularly as the produce seems to be very fresh.
We have been eating delicious avocados, tomatoes and cucumbers most days for lunch and dining on a variety of vegetable choices for dinner. Mushrooms seemed to be elusive, up until yesterday, but otherwise we have been able to find everything we have been looking for.
If only cheddar cheese was as easy to find?
