Fruit and Vegetables

There are a few different ways you can come by your fruit and vegetables in Molfetta.

The first is to go to the supermarket. Some local supermarkets have gotten into the habit of pre-packaging set quantities of each food, so as to skip the step of you having to pick each piece of produce individually, have it weighed and priced. Personally, I'm not fond of that method unless I'm in a big hurry (which does happen to be the case more often than I'd like!).


I prefer to choose my produce by myself.


For environmental reasons, I like to see produce that is free of plastic or styrofoam packaging. I think packaging is one of the great evils of our age!





And aesthetically, I like the way the produce looks lying there in its bin, all fresh and shiny!

Tomorrow I'll show you another produce shopping option...

The photos are wonderful and your comments make lots of sense. There are always trade-off, tho, or so it seems. Supermarkets with convenient packaging saves time, but takes away one's own personal choices. I still like to shop in small stores and get to know the owners and workers.

Yes, fresh and shiny fruits and vegetables are the best.

Chestnuts always look and sound appealing, but after trying the roasted I decided they belonged on my "been there, done that" list along with a check mark.

Your Padre Pio comment last week was great! Thanks for your frequent visits :)
