Going to Market

I love farmers' markets.  There is something so refreshing about buying produce, all dirty and imperfect, directly from the source.  This particular market was small - but the people here were lovely.  They simply gave you a plastic bag and you selected what you wanted - every now and then one of them would grab a particularly nice piece of produce and thrust it into your hand with a beaming smile as if to say: "This one is the best!".  I am constantly amazed by the kindness and generosity of the Dominican people - and the deliciousness of their produce.  For the first time in ages we ate delicious, sweet, juicy pineapple for breakfast...and not from a can!  Heaven.
