Monday Morning Vegetable Market – Kunming

Monday morning in Kunming I was awakened by a lot of noise. Horns honking, people yelling. The previous mornings my room had been very quiet. When DengXin arrived, we decided just to walk around the neighborhood as I had to leave to catch my plane back to Chengdu at 10am. Behind my hotel, we discovered the Monday wholesale vegetable market. It was an amazing array of colors, sounds and smells.


A truck load of pea pods.
Pea pods loaded up to be resold elsewhere.
A tricycle load of corn. That has to be hard work.
These tiny tomatoes are to die for. They eat them as a fruit, in fruit salads, desserts, etc.
These don’t look too appetizing, but, this is lotus root. Cleaned up, sliced and cooked, one of my new favorite foods. I’ve been afraid to look up the nutritional info on them. If I like it, it must be fattening.
A lady on her motorized bicycle probably delivering to a neighborhood market.
These are small yellow peppers, kind of like pepperoncinis (sp?).
Yes, New Mexico, you are not the only ones who eat green chile.
Truck load of hot green peppers.
Pipes for tobacco smoking. Someone said they look like bongs, I wouldn’t know ;-).
Ginger
Winter melon. They look kind of like watermelon but they are white inside. You eat them cooked. They’re pretty good.
Pumpkins. Asia has the best pumpkins. Not really shaped well for jack-o-lanterns.
White radish
Red radish
I’ll be glad when summer gets here, we’ve been eating a lot of cabbage.
The breakfast cart.  Pineapple, tea eggs, little round bread things, tofu on a stick and hotdogs. In the green bowl is crushed red chile. They roll their hotdogs in the chile. I’ll stick with mustard.
I have no idea what this is. DengXin couldn’t come up with a Chinese name for it either.

Potatoes, onions and garlic.
Mushrooms
All the different varieties of chilies.
