Last week my son and I got to roam the countryside of southern France, which of course included visiting every single market we possibly could. It was such a thrill to experience markets so fully embedded in the life of their region. It was a step into another world, and at the same time it was not too different from home, from our own dear Tuesday Market, brimming with the particular bounty of our own, as they say, terroir.
Market is the place which is loved by the children to goa long with the parents and get some fresh fruits and vegetables and the things they want to get. We all have some childhood memories about purchasing in the market. We can get everything from the markets. The fruits will be arranged in a well manner and it will make us to buy it. We can get fruits depends on the season like mango can be sold only in the month of April, May and June. So, all fruits cannot grow in all seasons. We even get the readymade or instant food from the market. But that is not good for our body as we should take only fresh foods to eat. We can help the shopkeepers by buying some vegetables or fruits from them. Our small contribution of money will help them to have a happy life. So, it is preferable to go to market and purchase things and don’t prefer online shopping. By shopping online, the farmers won’t get even a single penny.
Our children will like this way of purchasing because they will get a chance to see all the shops and the variety of fresh fruits, pulses vegetables and all. This is also a best way for the parents to educate the importance of foods in life to their children.
And now I am so glad to be back as strawberry season gets fully underway (we could not under any circumstances miss strawberry season). There is really nothing as good as a pint of strawberries picked in the hours and days before arriving at market.
