Prepackaged Veggies

  1. I’ve seen large bags of veggies like that at roadside stands before. Have not stopped to inquire because it looks like way more than I would use while they are still fresh. Are they intended more for families? Do you know the price of a bag like that?

  2. Ooohhh… I’d buy from him in a minute, and eat nothing but veggies for a week. Those look good! And he has them very nicely packaged. I’d give a good bit for a good papaya, too. Ours are just terrible — they come from Mexico, and of course are picked too green, etc. etc.

  3. Shortly you will find a picture of juice papayas. José Luis carries a wide variety of produce fresh from the countryside. That’s where we get our veggies not far away from where we live. Prices are as cheap as they can be. Good for our cash-strapped retiree’s budget.
