fresh fruits and vegetables

fruit seller. called bhaji-wallah in hindia. almost everyone here buys their stock of fruits and vergetables every 2-3 days or so; some even prefer to buy it daily. and in spite of all the food bazaar and department stores, buying produce from the local market remains the most popular option; not to mention the most convenient too: not only do many of these guys home deliver the order free-of-charge; but one can also get back to them the next day and complain in case a particular fruit did not turn out to be sweet enough. (this is done especially when it comes in mangoes)
we were working on mangalore study trip work: dipie and me are dealing with the market typologies in the city, and the word market has been buzzing in our head all evening.

This is a colorful and fresh shot.
The French authorities -via the Ministry of Health- encourages people to eat almost 10 fruits or vegetables a day so as to prevent diseases.

WOW! I love this. What a great picture! Nice repetition of form.

I do wish my pix were as big as yours but so far I am overwhelmed trying to figure it out.
