Living in Mexico I’ve really learned how amazing fruits and vegetables are when they are FRESH and not driven across a country or two before they go in my mouth. I don’t even want to think about everything that’s used to keep them “Fresh” looking.
One of the best parts of living in Las Palmas is that vegetables are SO cheap compared to the grocery stores at home in Canada. Today we went shopping and bought: 17 eggs, 1 bag of green grapes, 1 pineapple, 1 cauliflower, 1 brocoli, 1 onion, 6 bananas, 4 red apples, 3 green apples, 2 pears, 3 kiwis, and 1 pineapple. We spent the equivalent of $11.65 Canadian in pesos! Normally our veggie and fruit bill is about 40-50 pesos but we splurged on pineapple and grapes this time!
Now I realize not ALL things in the picture below are grown here in our town but they were still on my must-haves list today.
I’m really curious to know… How much (approximately) would these items be in your local grocery store, farm market etc… and where are you located?
