this is part two of the farmer’s market i encountered here in southern china.
it’s so interesting to see how different cultures exist & function.
the day was already quite warm (in the 80’s), as you can imagine, these next areas didn’t have the best of smells.
these are not pets.
they’re for eating.
same with these.
love all their different colors and markings.
an 80º day, these fish just sitting out on styrofoam boards…
ha! you would not find this in the usa.
grab a bowl and pick what you’d like.
are you getting hungry yet?
i’m sure after this photo you’re already running to the pantry for a bag of chips.
yes, these are fish heads and they are set out on display for sale.
there are also bins with live shrimp, turtles, fish and worms that you can choose from and they will clean and bag it right there for you.
i have so much respect for the way they live.
walking this market made me feel like such a prim.
in the usa we tend to like our food cleaned and packaged up all pretty-like.
perhaps this way is healthier. (minus, of course, the bouts of food poisoning!)
it certainly is fresher!
