The Feria

21 Aug

This past Saturday we went to the Feria or the local Farmers’ Market that is about a 10 minute walk from our house.  It is in a local park every Saturday.  It was really neat.  Farmers come from all over to set up their stands with thier produce.  Benjamin was not too hip on all of the smells, but to me it smelled like a mixture of citrus and cilantro (which by the way is corlantro here and cilantro in Mexico and we were quickly corrected)!  Gotta get it right.  We spent about an hour there getting a lot of different things to try to figure out how I could cook it.  We spent about 16 US dollars there and got enough vegetables and fruit to fill up a small table that we have in our kitchen!  It was amazing.  Later that day we had our friends and fellow GO missionaries Cohen and Amie Ezelle and their children over for dinner.  I made a great vegetable soup and fruit salad.  Here are the pictures.

    Little sister Court- Your description of the Market made me homesick!! We had a permanent one once across the street from our house in Goiania and once when I went to get some souvenirs to take to USA I began to feel already homesick from the smells- then I realized they wouldn’t make americans feel homesick. One day they will do that for Benjamin. Time changes us in many ways. Love to you all-Big Sis
