Anyone who is a serious foodie will understand my fascination with the beautiful shapes, colours and textures of fresh fruit and veggies.

Back in October 2012  we visited Greece, and on the day we were leaving, our in-laws said that we would be stopping in Argalasti  to visit the local market before we left.

It’s a market that sells clothes and household goods under large shade covers, but all around the perimeter are stalls selling fruit, vegetables and locally made goods like soap, jams, chutneys , soups and pickles.

The temperatures are still very warm, around 26 C but it’s a welcome stop along the way as we stretch our legs and get some fresh air and explore the market.

As usual with thing like fresh peppers grown far away from glasshouses, they not only looked beautiful, they also smelled amazing too.

We are flying back with Ryanair,  an airline that’s tough on excess baggage so selecting a few things to squish into our suitcases has to be dome with care. Luckily our in-laws have spare baggage space because they bought renovation tools from the Netherlands that they are leaving at their holiday home in Platania, on the Pelion peninsular so we can treat ourselves to some home made preserves and locally grown and dried herbs like oregano.  I could of course have browsed for ages but all too soon we are back in our respective cars and winding our way towards Volos.
