Via Ricardo J. Alfaro, commonly known as “Tumba Muerto”, is home to several improvised farmer’s markets. They pop out one day and the next days they’re gone, maybe chased out by public officials of City Hall.
City dwellers love these humble stands because they are conveniently located, their products are fresh, and their prices are reasonably within reach. My wife is specially fond of one close to our house attended by José Luis, a humble but extremely courteous fellow.
I was there last week with my P&S camera in tow, and took several pictures of José Luis attending his shabby stand. Business was good and the primitive cash register—Jose Luis’ pockets—was moving fast.
Take a look:
If you like to study traditions and lifestyles of other countries, please return tomorrow for more pictures of food grown in a tropical country in Central America. It could be different from what is grown and consumed in your part of the world. Good Day.
