Local Produce in Cyprus
The sights and sounds made a wonderful cacophony! There was a lot to take in. Glorious jewel-like colours everywhere you looked!
The peaches were huge, juicy and very, very sweet. I enjoyed one of those when I got back to the house, sitting by the pool in the sun.
I also bought some fresh herbs, green beans and garlic. I knew we would be eating out, so I didn't want to buy too much. I was very restrained!
It was such a very hot day, I was very glad that most of the stalls had canopies. Even though I was in the shade, I still managed to glug down a whole bottle of water as I browsed around.
I am so jealous of those of you who have such a joy on a regular basis! It beats trailing around a chilly supermarket, looking at unripe produce!
This is the local village salad, with very ripe, unctuous, bright red tomatoes, the best you have ever tasted! Even the cucumber had some flavour.
Oh, I just want to go back!
