“Juices of fruits and vegetables are pure gifts from Mother Nature and the most natural way to heal your body and make yourself whole again.” – Farnoosh Brock
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how much I love food, especially fresh fruits and vegetable.
Trips to the farmers market are an essential part of my weekend activities. I’m currently in Nigeria and I’ve been having a blast eating the freshest food yet. I’m in awe of how cheap and accessible fresh food is in Nigeria versus the U.S. I typically spend an ungodly sum of money trying to eat fresh foods in the U.S. but here Nigeria, the food is so much cheaper. Please leave thoughts about this matter below.
For those of you visiting or living in Abuja, the Maitama Farmers Market is located in Maitama District off Ibrahim Babagida Road. The colors are so bright so it’ll be hard to miss this place.
They have almost every fruit and vegetable in season. Some of my favorites were the Queen pineapples, apples, spinach, tangerine, bell peppers, papaya (paw-paw as Nigerians call it), oranges, ginger, soursop, and of course, my beloved plantains.
Not only do the fruits and vegetables look good, but they tasted so heavenly.
Check out some of the fruits and veggies they had on display below:
There are different sellers and you have to find a seller you trust can give you good deals. I’m still learning how to bargain so I can’t give you advice on that. However, I’m enjoying learning the art.
Another cool thing about this place is they have fruits to go and they can cut your fruits fresh for your convenience. You just have to ask!
I was satisfied with my finds and I left pretty excited!
