Photo’s were taken outside the Luxu wet market. On this particularly cool day the veggies looked pretty nice and fresh. The green leafy vegetable to the back is bokchoy. I’m not sure what the green and purple veggie in the front is called. Do you know the name?
No matter how many times I see it, I don’t tire of watching the locals hard at work. In this photo, I’m particularly interested in the method and scale she uses to weigh her veggies.
The cost of fresh vegetables and fruits in this area is amazingly low. To put into perspective, our family of 4 usually spends about 100 RMB ($16.00 USD) per week on fruits and vegetables.
I am grateful that we have a local TESCO to shop in; however, I am also very appreciative of these vendors that supply us with the freshest of produce and vegetables on a daily basis. Enjoy!
