Every day, the markets of our city are filled with color, joy, and much happiness. The caseras, vendors, offer their different fruit and other products to all present with a big smile. During this season, in the month of March, fruit arrives in great quantity, including pomegranate, watermelon, strawberries, and others.

The other day I went to look for something new in the largest markets of the city. The San Pedro Market called me and I visited it with a friend. On arriving I saw the various wheelbarrows from which people sell slices of watermelon, as well as pomegranates, strawberries, and granadillas.

The people who sold from these wheelbarrows were located to one side, outside the market. They sell pomegranates by the kilo and watermelon by the slice. The sol was radiant that day and it was at 11 am when I visited the market. The sun was reflected in the fruit and those marvelous lights made the fruit look perfect.

After I took a few photos of the caseras in the street, I decided to enter the San Pedro Market to look for something new. Within the market I sawthey were stills elling the sweets from Holy Week which remained. On the other hand, in the juice section, you could see different fruit well displayed. They were very attractive. I tried to take some pictures of the caseras with their fruit. Some said nothing, while others complained and even wanted me to pay them for the photo. Not all the caseras liek to have their picture taken by surprise.
