‘Farmer’s’ market 

in case you’re new here (or have been following and wondering where the heck I went), here’s a tiny recap of goings on. 

I live in Puerto Rico. Isla del encanto. Of white sand and beautiful turquoise waters. Of perpetual sunshine (and humidity) and afternoon showers. And really no real farmer’s markets. 

I mean, come on. It’s an island. Wouldn’t you think we’d need to grow something. For us?! I’ve lived in myriad places where there were abundant markets (St. Louis) and few and far between (Phoenix and Dothan). Going into this relocation I figured we’d have some. One. Maybe?

Food at the supermercados are expensive (can you say $6 for a pint of blueberries) so I’m sad to say I’ve been neglecting my fruits. Solace has come in going to Sam’s but that’s a 35 minute drive. I want my fruits and veggies!

Enter in the San Sebastián farmers market. Part market. Part flea market. Part livestock market. It’s a trip. With over 200 vendors you’re bound to find something. Granted, the fruits were sparse but we totally made out on veggies. And just the experience of it all is pretty cool. 

So I’m still branching out. Asking around. And hopefully soon I’ll be growing our own berries and other things. I do need to mention we’re in a drought so my garden has be quite lackluster. Saving that for another post. 

In the meantime, we have our guy Abby for greats tomates y limons and the occasional aguacate and we’ll venture out for more exotic fare at the San Sebastián market. The Moca market is next. Here’s a look at little cherry toms we bought (for 2$ a bag) that I roasted for a homemade pizza and some guava (that my father used to eat). And a cutie of my cutie! 

Always an adventure!

    You do have an adorable little one! What a great find in your tomatoes. We had trouble finding markets, too, while in Rincon. They have a market on Sundays but not really much by way of fruits and veggies. Our most luck was just in stopping by stands to buy their produce. Sometimes we were able to get some things on sale at the Econo.
