The open-air markets are special and filled with local specials. The colors here are clear and vivid -- would love some of the vegetables in jars!

Let's celebrate the colorful jars and not think about the coming winter!

Pickled veggies used to be so commonplace when I was young, but seldom see them around anymore.

Virginia said...

Oh BIbi, I just knew you'd have some wonderful local treats for us all.

Must be harvest time. Looks like a great place to shop.

Alexa said...

Beans, beans—good for the heart.
Get yours now at your local mart!
Seriously, it all looks so colorful and de-lish!

Somehow, European markets are so much more colorful and interesting than most I find here in the states. If I didn't feel compelled to show a Seattle market scene today I'd pick one from Italy or Paris -:)

A marvellous market photo- love all those beans. She's well wrapped up for a long day's work. Market people are so special.

Hilda said...

I don't think I've seen as many different varieties of beans sold in one place. Or pickled vegetables, for that matter. I find it fascinating.

It looks like the chap selling the Novi Moravski pasulj for 200 dinars mixed up his Latin and Cyrillic because he wrote Latin n's instead of Cyrillic i's!

Nanka said...

Hope you don't have a harsh winter.
Have a great week!!

Rumya said...

Nice colors there! Is that pickled cabbage (sauerkraut) I see? That's one of my favorites to eat on a cold winter's day with a spicy sausage, but unfortunately I don't see many cold winter's days here!

Paula said...

Pickled definitely signals cooler weather. Bibi, I don't want to sound ignorant but do you have to do most of your shopping in outdoor markets? I'm not up on Serbian shopping practices.

Lily Hydrangea said...

no... please, I'm not ready for cold weather!!!!

Kitty said...

my goodness, winter must be very bad there and come early. I'm not prepared at all!

Z said...

I love this photo. It reminds me Henri Cartier-Bresson photographs. Very well shot!
