An ode to my vegetable guy.

As I’ve talked about before, most of my grocery shopping happens locally in my neighborhood and this father son duo are one of my favorites. The dad exudes a grumpy I don’t care if you want to buy anything vibe (only melted by my little blond girl), and the son is such a sweetie. They are just around the corner from our apartment and cheaper than some of the other sellers closer to the main market. He always speaks slowly to me so that I can understand how much I owe him and when I get the numbers wrong and over pay he always gives me change. The selection on his cart is a little more basic, and it changes a bit from day to day, but he always has the staples like; eggplant, potatoes, carrots, onions, and tomatoes.

Yesterday’s loot included green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, and lemons. All of this for only 27 mdh! Which is about $2.70. One of the things I love about living here is how affordable and good the produce is. The stuff that’s bad for you like candy, chips, and soda is all a little pricy, and the vegetables are so affordable.
