It was so beautiful here last weekend I decided to head back to the Farmers' Market. This time I remembered my camera and decided that I would focus on two things - flowers and fresh fruits. I arrived just as the sun was rising over the trees, and it was already crowded. The market doesn't officially open until 7:30 a.m. but many vendors will let you buy their goods, but you will have to come back to pick them up after the horn has sounded.
There is certainly an abundance of luscious fruits at the market, and even a few that I had never seen before. It is a given that there will always be pineapple, papaya, and bananas so I tried to find some unusual fruits to showcase here.
"many edible seeds, sweet-tart flavor"
"tastes like an Asian pear with a hint of apple"
Pummelo"large sweet citrus"
"Sweet potato texture"
"sweet and sour taste, eat when soft and serve cold"
"tastes like a brown sugar pear, enjoy when soft"
"a lemon-lime hybrid from the Mediterranean"
"sweet-tart candy-like flavor"
Pomegranate"large, sweet variety. Very high in antioxidants"
"very sweet, use the seeds in a dressing"
"takes 20 years to fruit. Delicious, sweet grapefruit flavor"
"eat when very soft. Sweet with some chocolate flavor. Mix with whipped cream to taste like chocolate mousse"
"Rambut is a Malay word that means ‘hairs’, so you can see where the fruit got its name. The fruit is a yellow-white color and is soft and juicy"
And lastly, not a fruit but equally delicious. One stand was selling beignets and I could not resist. I love how this one looks like a heart.
