Fresh fruits by José Moreno


There are many places where they sell fresh fruit (super markets, bus station, etc.) but you can buy here in the downtown market, can be priced and you can say that will convince other, and can even talk to people.

Hay muchos lugares en donde venden fruta fresca (super mercados, la terminal de buses y otros) pero puedes comprar aqui en el mercado del centro, puede tener un precio y tu puedes decir otro que te convenza, y puedes hasta platicar con las personas.

What to Do - Salvino Terranova

So many of us have incredibly busy lives, I am often thankful for the moments of downtime that I have. Then again, I think we all know the feeling of boredom that can come over us when we aren’t in constant motion. This makes me think of the many vendors in the markets all over town, that have a lot of downtime. Of course they have busy hours of the day, when they hopefully sell much of what they have to offer. But also, they must have hours of time when there is nothing to do. My friends make fun of me for keeping my old phone only because it has Tetris on it, but I bet you that a few of these market vendors totally understand why I would.

Day After Day by Luna McCarthy

Day in, day out, the vendors are at the market. Come rain or shine, they are there, dedicated to selling their goods, no matter how great their stall is or how tiny their baskets are. In so many ways, I admire their tenacity and fortitude.
