Pleasant, Sweet and Refreshing Watermelon Market.

It was a beautiful day, the brightness of the light flickered through the layer that is covering the atmosphere to reach the surface in part of the earth where I was, and the sun finding its way from the horizon. What came to my mind was to find a pleasant, sweet and refreshing low-calorie summer snack fruit to enjoy and that was Watermelon, because it provides hydration and essential nutrients, as well as minerals and vitamins.

I made my way to a popular local market in Ore, to fulfil the #MarketFriday by @dswigle. Ondo Nigeria, where goods and services can be obtained to purchase a $3 worth.

Why I choose Watermelon was because of its benefits.
Watermelon and Orange helps the body to stay hydrated in the summer because it contains around 90% of water.

One of the benefits of watermelon is that it helps protect against heart disease.
One secret of buying a good watermelon is to look for one that is firm and heavy, not having soft spots or bruises. Make sure to tap the outside layer to know the texture of the fruit inside it.

There are several ways by which watermelon can be served.

As a juice: After exercise or a day in the sun, one can decide to dice watermelon and few ice cubes with a blender as a code and refreshing drink.

As a smoothie: One can choose to combine watermelon with orange juice or rather make a watermelon smoothie.

As a Salad: Mint, mozzarella, and spinach leaves can be added with watermelon for a tasty and healthy salad.

There are some risks associated with watermelon.

  • People who suffer from diabetes should minimize watermelon in their daily meals. Secondly, they can choose to consume it as a whole than as a juice.

  • Seek medical attention if you experience hives swelling, or difficulty breathing after eating watermelon. Because this is a sign that you are allergic to it.


Wow, that's great bro. keep up the good work


A wonderful #MarketFriday post! I love watermelon and the market looks like it has some good fruit in it! Thank you for the tips on how to choose a watermelon and all the additional nutritional information on it. Well done, this was a great post!

Thank you for joining in this week!

I love the concept of #MarketFriday and how our cultures differ and then again, how much they are alike. Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, even your language/languages. Along with the fact of what is normal for where you live? these are unwritten rules that rule our social behaviors. I see this as allowing for increased tolerance between cultures and nations, and opportunities to come together on an even playing ground. A strong culture can be beneficial to a country as it promotes unity, especially during a crisis, peaceful debate, and open dialogue. I had hoped that posting here will familiarize you with the world around you just a little bit more. Viewing it from a more personal level as opposed to the newsworthy level gives me a better understanding of the people and a view that is often not seen on National television.

I appreciate the amazing support given to #MarketFriday! Thank you! Your participation adds a piece of your world, and I have to say, people are interested in seeing it. This entire challenge has opened up the world to me and so many others. Thank you again for being a part of all this! I am so happy to see you here! I hope you have a fabulous day! Hive on!!

Fridays are all about the #MarketFriday Challenge! Looking to take part in it? Here is how:

I put these here for guidance, it doesn't mean you have done anything wrong in your post, but, for someone wanting to know what it is all about, here it is! If you have any questions, contact me in discord dswigle3637 or tag me. If you need help with anything, also feel free to contact me.

Rules of the Road

  1. Go to the market, or anywhere that you pay money for a service.
    Take pictures! Be creative!
  2. Tell us a little bit about the market or the event. What brought you there? What did you buy? How much did it cost?
  3. Post the picture(s) Of course, you should tell a little bit about the ones you post
  4. Use the MarketFriday Community Platform to post #hive-196308 (this is not required, but appreciated)
  5. Drop the link into the MarketFriday comment section so I can find it
  6. Following me and reblogging the post so more see it would be appreciated !! Not a rule, just appreciated, more vision for more views on your posts!
  7. You must put #MarketFriday by @dswigle somewhere on your post. If you don't and someone reads it, there is nothing to tie #MarketFriday to that post.
  8. Please only one post each week. Believe it not, I run out of voting power if you put in many more than that.
  9. Please use good taste in what you post. If you are going to buy liquor and go on a bender, I am pretty sure that nobody wants to hear about it. Regarding the posts, I would like to hear about the post a little. Here is my market and 20 pictures, many of them blurry? I would rather see a few pictures that I can see what it is. This is not a criticism, this is to help you become a better poster. Better posts equal better payouts.

As always, please remember! #MarketFriday loves you!
