Can you believe that we bought everything in the last picture for 4.30 USD (55 pesos)? That's some apple, starfruit or carambola, bell peppers, tomatoes, some green beans, and a giant papaya. That would have been at least $15 at our beloved Whole Foods.
Over the past year I've become obsessed with juicy bell peppers for their tangy taste, crunchy texture and high volume of nutrients. It's been rough though, sometime I can only find them at $3.99 a pop. That's why I was super happy to stock up on some bell peppers, as well as other produce while we were in Mexico. This trip may have been the first vacation where I didn't eat buttery restaurant food every day.
