So Im writing this post from my beloved family´s place and happy to share with you all some tips from my country.
The first of them is:
#1 If ever in Brazil go to a “feira”
If the term is yet unknown to you, that means “fair”, but mostly of fresh vegetables and fruits and trust me on this one: you won´t find a larger and cheaper range of it anywhere else!
Most brazilians use to shop their weekly veggies at these fairs, because the farmers come themselves from their places to sell the products for a lower price than in the supermarkets.
It usually happens once a week in the middle of the street and the earlier you come the most fresh you get it!
One last tip! If you ever get to go to a “feira”, don´t forget to buy our most delicious pastry, the PASTEL. It is a fried dough filled with whatever you wish, from meat to veggies and cheese. This is me this morning enjoying my pastel:
Sun kisses and let me know if you have ever been to Brazil or to a feira 🙂
