Snapshot: Avocados

Do you know where your food comes from? It seems like such a simple question but more often than not, the answer is no. A luxury I had here at the Escazú Centro farmer’s market is actually buying my produce from the growers (or their children).

These are my avocado people.

Ok, so they’re not my avocado people, I share them with everyone else at the market, but I like to think their extra friendly greetings is something personal, that they remember me. They are my favorite stop on Saturdays and last Saturday, my last trip to Escazú Centro farmer’s market, I only bought 1 avocado. Solamente uno aguacate. It was bittersweet to put it lightly.

As always, it was a fine aguacate.
