Ukarumpa market (post by Bill & Liz)

Three days a week, local villagers come in to Ukarumpa to sell their home grown produce at the market. It starts at 6am and finishes at 8am, so you have to be up early!

All sorts of things are sold there, such as the familiar bananas, spring onions, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries and more. Plus there are some more unusual items like: strange green leafy things, which can be used like spinach, various types of kaukau (sweet potato), sugarfruit, black raspberries, 'pitpit' and some other unknown things.

Here's Liz and Julie checking out the strawberries:
