Farmer's market / Amazon 1

Over the holidays we took a cruise up the Amazon.  One of the highlights for me was a walkthrough of the huge market in Manaus, Brazil, a thousand miles upriver from the ocean.  In the middle of a rain forest, Manaus is agriculture central.  We saw many fruits and vegetables that were familiar; many others that weren't.

Bananas of many different varieties:


Very long beans:

Lots of fruit:

I'll show you some of the unfamiliar foods in my next post.
