By the looks of it, I have neglected this blog for quite some time. The thing is, what I write here is usually factual and I seem to prefer a more narrative, personal approach. Maybe one day I will find the right balance.
For today, I just wanted to share some photos of local produce at the main Farmer’s Market that is held in Ta’ Qali. It is the best place to buy fruit and vegetables – which is what the majority of stalls sell. Interspersed amongst them are a few flower and meat sellers.
I would love to see some more variety – maybe a few stalls selling home-baked goods or jams and there is definitely a need for a couple of booths selling bread. But all in all, it is a pleasant shopping experience and it is nice to be able to walk around and then go back to purchase the freshest and best-looking wares.
Nature’s palette is so vibrant, isn’t it?
Ta’ Qali Farmer’s Market
Opening hours: Tuesdays 16.00 – 19.00 and Saturdays 09.00 – 17.00
Oh marvellous! You have strawberries! The Spanish ones have arrived here and they taste like tap water. Yours must be luscious!ReplyDelete
I am just mad about strawberries because I make this salad with them that is a staple in my diet and right now I am just waiting waiting waiting for them to come in season here! All of these images are entirely uplifting. Loree, did you know, just this past weekend, I was in the produce section of a natural market and, taking in all the colors, I actually got this jolt of vitality. Amazing, isn't it?ReplyDelete
And I think it's nice the way you blog here and at Stories and Scribbles. Maybe you'll never *feel* like you strike a balance but it does seem like a good approach as a reader. At least you don't blog here because you feel forced, but rather inspired.
Great shot of all that lovely fresh produce Loree! I particularly love the sight of those strawberries!!! - and the Gerberas - beautiful!!ReplyDelete
Great shots! Makes me want to bite into some fresh radishes!!ReplyDelete
And those peppers look glorious. Mmmmm.
The fruits, vegetables and flowers are so colorful, I would love to taste those lettuces!ReplyDelete
This is heaven!ReplyDelete
The little I saw of Livorno I really liked but then I'm biased because I love harbours!
