Latoka Market

Shopping for fresh foods at the daily market in Latoka, Fiji is a real treat. Fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish and spices abound. On each visit we load ourselves down with full back packs and stuffed grocery bags in each hand. If we splurge on the expensive items like a few dozen fresh eggs at $3.30FJD a dozen then we’ll rack up a bill of around $20FJD or about $14USD for all the food we can carry. The spices are amazing and our new found interest in Indian food has the spice cabinet bulging with exotic spices, curries and peppers. Some of the spices are pictured in a ray of sunlight flowing in from a window above.
