Street Market

These are pictures of the street market in Santos. The street market happens on the same street on a specific day each week, usually in the morning from 7 a. m. to about 1 p. m. except on Mondays. They can be short about 4 blocks, or long, over 13 blocks.
I love to go to the street market because the products are much better than the ones in the supermarkets. You can touch the products to check if they are green or ripe. There are different stalls such as potatoes, onions, garlic, fruits, coconut, eggs, greens, potted plants and flowers as well as, seafood, chicken, clothing, shoes, home appliances, hygiene and cleaning items, toys, and so on. There are also stands that fix pans, straw seats on chairs and pressure cookers. There are stalls where sell small savory snacks such as a pear-shaped  deep-fried chicken filled croquette,  pastry envelope with different fillings and a torpedo-shaped croquette (both deep fried in vegetable oil), a small pizza-like bread with topping and sugarcane juice.
It’s very funny to go to the street market because the sellers announce their produces by crying and saying funny things like “Hey, beautiful girls do not pay, but also do not take the products”. The vendors offer pieces of fruits to try!
So, going to the street market is good because you buy good produce, you stroll, which is good for your health, and you have fun as well.

Wishing you a nice week! Sandra

  6. During the 80's, I had a market stall selling our own vegetables. It was in an indoor market though. Blooming hard work, very early mornings and all kinds of weather but there was a lovely community spirit amongst the market traders. I loved it.

    1. Hi Molly!

      They wake up very early at 2 a.m. to get there about 5 a.m, doesn't matter if it is raining or not, which is a hard work that passes from parents to sons or daughters.

      Wishing you a nice weekend, Sandra xx

  7. It sounds as if there's the opportunity to go shopping in a street market several days in the week which is a convenient and good way to buy fresh produce and other items.

  9. Hello Sandra,

    Thanks for finding my blog and leaving me a comment, I am going to follow you back now! Lovely to see your market, here in Belgium we also have weekly markets with fresh produce, plants, clothes and food stalls. One of them is my favourite because there is a lady with a large stall selling wool and everything you could want for knitting, crochet, sewing etc. ;)

    Have a nice weekend,
    Ingrid xx
