On a cold rainy Saturday, Caleb Zigas and I headed out for the Organic Market in Podil. A one day event, we were curious to check out what was on offer, and to learn a bit more about organic growing and eating in Ukraine. Much more to come, we hope, about organic growing in general here, as it's fascinating, but here's a bit of what we saw.
A pig roast, which was excellent--you can see Caleb, left, and our new acquaintance, Vladimir, enjoying it.
A display of flowers and peppers, melons and squash labeled organic, fair trade coffee.
A terrific soup, with the smoked pork, beans, potatoes, and tiny dumplings, cooked over an over fire.
And finally, behind the scenes at one of the tents, a generous feast of homemade horseradish vodka along with salo, dark bread, homemade butter and tvarog. Delicious!
