of summer incarnate
I’m a tropical fruit fiend. Living in the Netherlands.
Add to that my preference for local produce and you understand why I’m in constant mourning for the buttery mango, lime-drenched papaya, and quirky fruits like rambutan that I took for granted when I lived in Indonesia.
A mosey through the farmer’s market revives me from my moping. It always does. I wind my way through the crowds to my favorite produce stand, where a chic bespectacled lady with a white chignon takes my coins in return for apricots, peaches, and strawberries. I love these juicy bites of summer incarnate.
What delicious treat is in season where you live?
lovely photos with lovely angles
kiwifruit are finally in season yaaaay
Gorgeous pics. You know what I miss from Indonesia? Mangosteens – I’d love one of those right about now. :)
Roger that! (: We call them “manggis” and they are always a huge treat!
oooh, I love the insider scoop on what to call them – thanks!
