Living in Color! Todo es de Color!

Living in color holds new meaning when shopping al fresco. Open-air markets have been with us since the first move from foraging to the farm. Since that time farmers have  needed to sell the lands' bounty and city dwellers have sought the freshest possible ingredients for their soup pot and spit. I revel in all that history and make a conscience move to avoid insipid supermarkets. Where I find nothing overly super except all the pretty packaging that ends in the landfill. I choose open-air markets... and over the years I´ve learnt the rhythm of seasons and the providence of life in South America. I've seen the children grow and parents grow older and have come to find that shopping for sustenance can be the making of community. Here we have our friendships and conversations. Here we live in color.
