Since arriving in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye we have heard regularly that the best produce deals can be had early on Tuesday mornings. Real early.
Like, before sunrise.
That is when the boats hauling fruits and vegetables from the mainland dock on the lagoon-side of town.
It is — I’m told — an open-air marketplace where buyers from restaurants, groceries and roadside stands get the best goods. Homemakers, too, in hunt of a deal show up.
Again, that’s what I am told. I have yet to go.
There are no good reasons. It is one part do-I really-want-to-get-up-that-early-for spinach? And one part intimidation: I’m not so sure I would know a good deal or a fresh guava if it were right in front of my face. And one part, my Spanish is terrible.
So, that is why I am linking to this post from tacogirl.com, the longest running San Pedro blog on living the good life here on the island. Taco Girl got up and went hunting for fresh from the farm cow’s milk and cream — and found it!
Taco Girl has some really nice photos, too, of the Tuesday morning sunrise market.
Check it out! I plan to, once we return to the island next week.
