My Fish Stew Market Friday

This would be my first post in this community, do I need to do a sort of introduction? πŸ˜‡ Yeah, I think I should.

I'm a lady that loves to cook a lot but have been failing to take pictures to show for my market outings which this community is created for.

I don't know how it happened but I remembered to take some pictures today when I went to the market to get some food stuffs to prepare my FISH STEW πŸ˜‹

They may not be professional pictures but please view with me as I take you around my stops at the market to get what's needed for my stew.

But before that, these are the places I walked past while going to where I get my stew ingredients.

Aren't those gowns looking beautiful? 😍

I knew what I went to the market for (my fish Stew ingredients) but somehow my eyes couldn't stare away from those gowns so I took a picture of them. And I think that pink gown would have look nice on me, what do you think? πŸ˜…

I actually stopped to bargain for a Pam slipper

I was walking past this shoe shop and saw a beautiful Pam slippers, I stopped to ask for the price and was willing to buy one if the price was favorable. Yeah, it was a nice slippers but $8? I thought it was too expensive or maybe the money at hand wasn't enough to get it at that time so I walked past πŸ˜…

Fresh tomatoes for my fish stew

I finally got to the part of the market where they sell my fish Stew ingredients and the first on the list was fresh tomatoes. You can see how it is being shaded for sales, I bought two packs for half a dollar.

Fresh pepper for my fish stew

Then I bought some fresh pepper for about 0.3cents, I don't like too spicy meals so I buy lesser pepper for my stew. I added the two ingredients together, bought onions and paid someone to help me grind them with a grinding machine.

A picture of the onions I bought from

I was almost done with buying the stuffs I need but not until I bought the main thing which would complete my stew to be a Fish Stew.

No, I'm not the one touching the fish πŸ˜…

I bargained a price with the seller and she tried to select a bigger fish for me, the fish cost me $1.5 and I thought it was worth it as the tomatoes I bought was a bit much too.

Some Watermelons and paw paw for take home

I don't think there's a day I go to the market and not get some fruits to take home. I have my favorite fruit which is banana but for some reasons I don't know, bananas are a bit more expensive to get now so I bought some watermelon and paw paw instead.

Well, my market Friday wasn't too stressful for me as I didn't waste much time at the market unlike other times. So there you have it, how the market outing was for me to get a fish Stew prepared.

Thanks to this amazing #marketfriday community and to @dswigle for this beautiful idea to share and view some market photos. I had fun writing this.

Thanks for reading and viewing!!!

You are officially welcome to market Friday πŸ˜‚πŸ˜.
You shop just like me, I might have made a list and budget but often times divert to buy or price whatever appeals to me.
Please send my take home pawpaw.

πŸ˜‚ I think that's just a norm in going to the market, you tend to go off budget sometimes.

Your take home pawpaw on the way 😁

I really enjoyed reading it! Welcome to #MarketFriday @merit.ahama! We are happy to see you! You wrote a wonderful post as an introductory and for the market!I liked those gowns too, but, I always bring just enough for my food. How much do the pams usually cost? You said he wanted $8.00 - is that close to the normal price? Maybe next time. You know what? Your peppers are such a good price! Do they charge to grind them? The bananas here in the Washington, DC area are expensive now. Last season, they were cheap and this season, over the limit for buying.

You really put the post together nicely and it has been a pleasure to have you! I always put the suggestions in each response, so don't feel like you did anything wrong. Thank you so much for being a part of #MarketFriday! I am so happy to see such an awesome response to the challenge. The response was overwhelming this week, so I apologize for the brevity, It is a holiday weekend and I have had family from out of town since Wednesday, so time is not mine. I promise you, I am never this short! :)

#MarketFriday has evolved over time from straight shopping to a cultural affair as it highlights how we differ and then again, how much we are alike. We have become a melting pot of culture, but, it is still the Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, even your language/languages that separate us... 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 can only hope this to be true.

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


Rules of the Road to Join #MarketFriday!

  1. Go to the market, or anywhere that you pay money for a service.

    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.
  6. Please only one post each week. Believe it not, I run out of voting power if you put in many more than that.

As always, please remember! #MarketFriday loves you!

It surely is wonderful to go to a market like yours. My grandma loves bananas. We eat quite a bit ourselves. We buy the cheapest ones that is measured by weight. May I know what is paw paw? I've never had any of that before.

I found you on @dreemport.

Looking forward to seeing another post from you.

God bless.

You don't know about paw paw? I guess you don't have it over there.

It's a kind of fruit too, very delicious and crunchy when it's not too ripe and too sweet when it's very ripe πŸ˜€

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Nothing good about overripe pawpaw. The crunchiness adds to it.

@victorholyo might know but as papaya.

@victorholyo do you know papaya?

Hi, I am @khoola... also from @dreemport,

Yes, I think the pink gown would look lovely on you!

Tell you the truth reading it felt exactly the same when I was shopping not just shopping but also talking with my wife... pointing at bag, a gown, explaining the prices, it was fun,

I always go to the market with her... she knows where to buy the cheapest and best everything even how much it should be... haggling and everything.

Amazing...

Reading your Blog... reminded me of her a lot.

Thank you!
