Farmer’s Market, Take Two

Sunday was fairly slow.  We went to the farmer’s market, and this time we were armed with a shopping list from my aunt.  I think we ended up spending around $15 USD.  We got: potatoes, onions, green chillies, leeks, okra (yuk), green beans, mangoes, Chinese style eggplants, another type of eggplant (small and round, but not very purple), cabbage, nareal (a greenish root vegetable that tasted like cabbage as far as I could tell), tomatoes, cucumbers, black pepper corns, limes, carrots, and sugar cane.
