Whenever I'm in town on a weekend, I make sure to visit the street market 4 blocks down from me. It's pretty fantastic because I get a week's worth of fresh veggies and fruit for about half the price it would be at the super market. Today I spent about 15 dollars and bought beetroots, apples, strawberries, onions, oranges, lettuce, cucumbers, hot peppers, grapes, 3 chicken breast fillets and a dozen eggs.
super muito bom, no?
I love the guy who sells the chicken too, and my Portuguese is finally up to a level where I can have a small conversation with him everytime I go to this stand. He gave me four eggs for free today.
The market also has pirated DVD's, coconut and sugarcane juice, candy, homemade sweets, and even homemmade jam. Here are some pictures:
pastel stand (deep fried deliciousness, filled with a mix of sweet or salty combinations.. my favorites are banana and honey or guava and cheese)
fig jam and guava jam- I have yet to buy some, but I'll get around to it eventually
Then I put all my lovely purchases together and made a bomba salad topped with chicken breast. All from the feira. woot woot!
