Photos from the fruit & veg market

i took these a while ago but forgot to pop them on here. There is a large (well huge would probably be a better word) bazaar called Sederak, which sells everything (more about this later) and there is small corner for fruit and veg. This is very much for bulk buying but there are some stalls and shops that will sell smaller quantities. It is very seasonal – if it is in season then there will be lots of it, if not then nothing.

    Shopping is defiantly a different experience, and seasonal veg is good, right?

    Season veg is great in summer and autumn but a bit wearing towards the end of winter when you really want something other than pumpkin and cabbage!
    I will probably make up another book, they make great keepsakes and I am going a few followers for Baku but more of my visitors still search for Korea!

    It looks a feast for the eyes. Do you have to be cautious in what and where you buy? Any concerns re water etc?

      As everywhere you have to wash fruit and veg carefully. Azerbaijan produces a lot of its own as it has a lot of different climate zones for a small country. So apples from the north, pomegranates from the farming lands in the middle, tea from the south and nuts in the mountains.
      We are advised to not drink the water at all. I am very careful (hang up from last time we were here) and use bottled water for everything (brushing teeth, washing veg etc…) but others are more relaxed.
      Getting meat is more fun (fresh meat is advertised by a cows head hanging outside the butchers) I should write a blog post on that!
