Market Report: on the road between Donetsk and Mariupol, July 2011
On Tuesday, on our way back to Donetsk from Sartana, the Greek village near Mariupol, we stopped at a highway-side market to see what was for sale. The vendors told us they were all from nearby villages. Here's what was for sale. Above, pickles and pickled peppers.
Zucchini and patty pan squash.
Hazelnuts (the first we've seen in a from-the-village kind of market)
These are Georgian, we think. They are an almond stuffed inside a grape surrounded by a sort of hard fruit jelly. Anyone know the name?
Red and black currants.
Smoked fish. And finally, two market vendors who were kind enough to pose for us at their work.
