Trini Market Place

This collection comprises pictures of some of the fruits and vegetables that can be found on sale in the farmers' markets throughout Trinidad and Tobago. Weekend market is a tradition in these islands, and even though some of these fruits and vegetables can be purchased in the supermarket, the atmosphere is not the same. Nothing can compare to the drama of the vendor hawking his or her goods, the buyer haggling over the price, or the rich colour and vibrancy of the Saturday morning market.

The origin of each item in this collection, as well as its use in local cuisine, are discussed.
You can also view recipes for some of these fruits and vegetables.
