Costa Rica: Quepos farmers' market
This morning, 7.21.12, Saturday, we walked to the local farmers market in downtown Quepos, at the marina. I wore Jessica's Gap 1969 jean shorts & my maxstudio white linen top, with Champion visor and Keen sandals. I purposely left all my shorts at home, thinking my 70 year old legs not fit for public consumption. But it is too hot & humid for the long pants I did bring.
The flowers along the streets & paths are lush and colorful.
Below is our local bus stop.
Many of the local vegetables and fruits are so big, they look like they were grown on steroids:
carrots the size of cucumbers
beets as big as baseballs
squash big as a guitar
radishes big as tennis balls
grapes the size of golf balls
bananas long as scythes
We've been here 8 days, never heard a siren or saw a police car so we were wondering where the police were. Today on our way to the fish market, we found them.
