Last week when I was in Hawaii, I made a special visit to the farmers’ market. We got there at the tail end of the market and a lot of the farmers were starting to pack up. Luckily we were able to snag some fresh fruit. Check this out:
Can you imagine buying this kind of fruit at your local farmers market? GAH!
In the picture above there is a bag of cherry tomatoes, 4 yellow papayas, 2 mangoes, 2 mountain apples, 1 avocado, 2 pineapples, a large bunch of ice cream bananas and another light green fruit that I don’t remember what it is called.
The ice cream bananas were neat. They were little mini bananas and had a nice sweet flavor. I really wanted to try some grilled but never did get a chance to cook them up at the condo. Mostly we tossed them in a beach bag or back pack to eat on the go.
The pineapples were so sweet and juicy and so were the papayas and mangoes. I made a sweet tropical fruit salad one morning for breakfast.
I wonder if I lived in Hawaii if I would ever get tired of eating this kind of local fruit. For some reason I just don’t think so!
