This morning being Wednesday….and wednesday being great market day…I went out fully equiped with my basket and hungry stomach dictating every single move . Every trip to the market is pure delight, I know I keep going on about it but it is!
It could be that 12 years spent shopping in Tesco took its toll on me but when I am in that market I can’t help but smile!
I had my eyes on melons today. 3 for 5 euros…skin exploding…screaming at me…”eat me! eat me today!”
The proud melon owner winked at me: So how many would you like?
“All 3… one for today , tomorrow and the day after…go ahead and choose them for me I can never tell…I would rather leave it to the expert !”
And this took some time believe me!
She first held, smelt, pulled the tips and eventually took out her pencil and marked every single one in the right order of eating!
I ate number one today…so good!
I love the passion and dedication of these people! As for me I shall be there next week,while these little babes are still in season I will not miss a treat!
