NICE SURPRISES @the MARKET
Saturday fun shopping at the Negros Farmers Weekend Market always brings surprises.... you don't know what "special" products the vendors bring. Today, I got my basket full of freshly harvested organic kangkong, bokchoy, basil & lettuce leaves. Then got two bunches of pretty sunflowers to perk up the house. Sweet santol, pineapples, avocado for fiber & vitamins. A vendor selling organic rice suddenly offers me piping hot coconut kumbo (fritters) and the best red rice puto I have ever tasted! - chewy, 100% organic red rice with the right amount of coconut milk for a good consistency and smell. The best surprise of all --- sausages, pate, pie & fried rolls from jean-Pierre, a French guy married to a Filipina. He will be back next Saturday for more of his delicious creations! And oh---forgot to tell you--- Maui & Sons serves the best Fish & Chips, also a new offering. See you next Saturday for more surprises! Don't miss it.
