Honduras-Part 9 -The fruit markets of San Pedro Sula
After we got our fill of the meat markets, I was ready to move to the produce markets. The fruit market first, then on to the vegetables. The thing about produce in Latin America is that it always looks fresh and ready to eat. I don’t know how they keep it looking like that in all the heat.
By 9 a.m. it was incredibly hot. I had sweat dripping off me. I didn’t wear a hat because I didn’t want to look like a tourist…….like I really looked Honduran. Right!!
The traffic in the streets around the market was horrendous. I have no idea how Santos got through those tiny holes in the traffic, but somehow he did.
The vendors seemed to welcome me taking photos. Many of them wanted to talk with me and show me their produce and how they peel or cut it.
Lets take a look at the types of fruit you can expect to buy in the markets:
Santos acted nervous the entire time. He was always guarding my back and looking around. He seemed a little uncomfortable in the tight quarters of the markets. In any event he said it was time to go to the vegetable market. OK, Santos….you are the boss. I am in your territory now! Let’s go.
