We did a lap around the hall first, looking at what's on offer and planning our floral arrangements. The vendors were friendly and will say anything to do a sale.
I was looking at an unknown bunch of flowers, the vendor approached and said "That is Belladonna just like you! Will last for a week." The dainty pinkish white flowers just looked beautiful soaking up the sunlight, emitting a light sweet scent. Without too much thought, I paid for it and it's coming home with me!
Money changed hands fast and the vendors were not shy from yelling. In fact, they seemed to compete with each other for the lowest price.
If you buy multiple bunches, most would be willing to do a deal for you. If not, you can find ways to negotiate. It is definitely a buyer's market here. You get to call all the shots!
The loose coins in my purse beckoned to be spent. So we headed to the Sydney Market and see what fruits & vegs are on specials.
Apparently, everything is on special!
Mostly all box sales. A box of apples for $8, the further you walked in, the more you wondered about the premium price we pay at Coles & Woolworths.
It was like a shouting match in here and you can find some exotic fruits and vegetables here too. At one stage we were so curious, we stopped another shopper to enquire about the large bunch of exotic greens she was purchasing.
