And here we are on the last day of 2012. Quite momentous, really.
Before I get too carried away, I would like to send each and every one of you my warmest wishes for a happy, healthy and fruitful 2013. Thank you so much for your loyal support, for commenting and for reading my blog – it means a lot :))
|all that citrus fruit is such an uplifting sight, don’t you think?|
Now, back to this morning: it dawned bright and clear, just that kind of morning to make you want to leap up and get going which is exactly what I did: I grabbed my camera and headed off to my local market. This time I didn’t take the car as I really didn’t feel like buying after all that Christmas excess -I just wanted to be out there sharing the experience with everybody else.
Here are the photos I took:
|it’s still pomegranate time here|
|the hugest cabbages you will ever see|
|pickles for everybody|
|beautiful baby beetroot – ‘new crop’/yeni mahsul|
|this guy insisted on holding up his container of fresh ‘organic’ milk for this photo!|
|seç al means choose and buy!|
|you can even buy fish at the market: here, hamsi or anchovies, and istavrit|
|literally, ‘blood carrots’. I think they make şalgam from these|
