I visited the Yellow and Green Market back in February for the first time and I just felt in love with the market and the people.
I needed to buy lots of greens, oranges, some incense for my house altars and some small bamboo plants.
Of course its always way cheaper to buy at a market than at any mall or grocery store
and most this market products are organic. Besides is better to know the person than is growing your food than the one who is transporting in a freezer truck (even though, they are important too).
The market entrance as photographed by my youngest daughter with my instructions: "Not that angle", "Get the other side" and the always annoyed "Are you sure you got the picture?"
Our first purchased was eucalyptus honey for morning tea, I like it on my oranges and I also use it on my neck and face. Thanks Bees!
This shop specialized in local honey and you can taste any of them in a small spoon before buying your honey.
This is Mystik Sisters, our friend Nitza's shop. We took some photos with Nitza's but because we didn't use the flash they came out...well bad, pretty bad so its better to display all the merchandise that we love.
A wall of herbs!
I love sunflowers and flowers in general as most of my skirts and shirts shows.
The roof and the market banners gives a rustic and red barn-like feeling.
We Latinos all use some kind of peppers in our meal and in our seasonings.
These ones are hot but not fiery hot, just hot enough.
An array of earthy goods and some extra large carrots.
These are my favorite peppers to eat and to cook with; I use them in my salads, pasta and when seasoning beans and meat.
A bag full of greens and some other goodies as well as an empty pocket and an even emptier stomach.
Another photo opportunity while choosing our next meal path!
And here we are at Antojitos; with all the goodness of empanadas and all of the goodness of Latin food stuff in yuca, bread or potatoes and fried and fried!
And the two lovely ladies that run the booth (#122) and that also cooked all the deliciousness on display.
On our way to the parking lot stood this magnificent representation of the real animal and so user friendly that it was calling for a photo op.
As we drove out into I-95 we pass by Boomers, an amusement park. This wooden roller coaster is called The Hurricane. In the past 7 years I spend many summer days in this park with my girls, we used to ride the coaster and go into the park arcade and played killing zombies, monsters and aliens games. The most we ever rode the coaster was 42 times with 2 breaks to drink water and to go to the bathroom. It was an accelerating experience and every time we drive by this area we feel sad that it got closed and its just standing there like a wooden soldier refusing to give in into defeat.
For my market outing I wore:
Made in Indonesia Ann Taylor Loft jeans, thrifted few months ago.
Made in The USA old white tank.
The cardigan with no tag is from Marshall or Steinmart and its also quite old.
Painted belt, thrifted last month.
Necklaces from Steinmart. Bracelets from DOTS and Steinmart.
Liz Claiborne purse about 5 years old.. Sandals from Marshalls.
I'm having a week off from work and I'm planning on spending it with family and friends.
I'm also celebrating my birthday, my oldest and youngest daughter birthdays too (yes, we were all born in November) and Thanksgiving with my mom and niece.
Have a healthy and happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your time with your love ones,
