ASIAN MARKETS / GIANT JACKFRUIT!

The markets in Asia are both offensive and pleasing to all of your senses. Venders lined up with tables full of brightly colored fruits and veg and fish guts spilling out on the floor. During out last visit to the local market, we found a rather large jack fruit, you usually see Jack fruits laid out on the floor from their heavy fall from the tree. They are surprisingly heavy!

In the UK we pay something like £2 for a mango, and here, theres so many that they are left for the bugs on the floor by the trees! The free mangos definitely make the “favorite things about the Philippines” list!

This photo was taken in Moalboals fruit and veg market, I much prefer shopping at a market than in a SUPER MARKET. Everything is organic here, local people pick mangos and sell them at a little stool. Very refreshing!

Other markets we have been to : Legazpi night market
