Market Day, Puerto Aventuras, Quintana Roo, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

The main village area of  Puerto Aventuras has many shops and restaurants including a few small convenience stores but - they only stock a very few perishable fruit and vegetable items -  that creates a perfect opportunity to have a twice weekly "farmer's market" set up in a tent by the kiosk. Three men kept the operation humming along efficiently, re-stocking the bins as needed, taking the cash from customers, and hopefully, making good money for themselves and their families selling fresh and  healthful produce to vacationers and residents alike.

The prices posted are per kilo in Mexican pesos. 

Here's most of our haul for the day.  Total cost was $320 pesos (about $25 USD).  That included 12 Hass avocados and two papayas which back home just by themselves would have cost about the full amount. I expect we'll be back here on Saturday - and next Wednesday - and the next Saturday..............now if we could just find a panaderia (bakery) that makes and sells "pan integral"  (whole grain bread) we'd never have to leave.........
