There is much more to see, eat, smell and purchase outside of the market than in Halifax. I think this is great since more people are able to sell their goods and outside is typically nicer than inside. Today made for a little soggier than ideal conditions but that's what flip flops and a raincoat are for:
|So many vendors to choose from|
I picked up some local veggies and fruits and made fast friends (although I'm sure he doesn't know it - yet) with one of the older gentleman vendors. I went to buy an onion, it came to $1.50, and he then just asked me to pay $1.25 then just asked for $1.00. All the while I didn't say one thing - I will now be a faithful customer, all for saving 50 cents, this man has a good business sense! Maybe he sensed I am now on a student budget?
One of the most important things at this market (I've learned over the years) is their samosas. I love things that are only 90 cents and are REALLY tasty!
|OM NOM NOM!|
My market fresh picks: yellow plums (AMAZING), apples, a sundried tomato chicken sausage, corn, my $1 onion, garlic and homemade pesto. I think I paid about $15 for this, hooray for the market!!
Dear Market, I will be back next week to buy more of your tasty, local treats!
