Food markets are a great place for captivating smells and great food stories
We love food markets, the aroma and captivating smells of world foods, freshly cooked foods, the hustle and bustle of traders, their enchanting knowledge, and personal stories. Not to mention the excitement of new tastes and textures, of fruit and vegetables across cultures.
We love food, we love it fresh
Sadly, not many experience their local markets and there’s much to explore. Some are taken by scaremongers dismiss the provenance of market food. Don’t get me wrong, there are “bad eggs” everywhere but most food traders will tell you how they’ve come about their food or how it’s made. Feel free to ask- just don’t ask for their recipes-:).
Being penny wise and pound savvy may not only involve you stocking up on good quality fresh foods; a trip to food pop ups every now and then may revitalise your taste buds, and introduce you to new textures as well as nutritious foods. Some pop up the ideal place for tasting and finding out about produce.
