Good Meragelet - Finally!

Today at Machane Yehudah, I bought a HUGE basket of grapes, 2 red and 2 orange peppers, 4 red tomatoes, and a bag of royal gala apples, all for 12 shekels.

That's under $3, people!!

And Air hooked himself up with a nice-size bag of peanuts for $1.50!

Also, did you know that, anywhere in Israel, pomegranates and mangoes cost as little as apples?

That's b/c you don't pay extra to ship them in from Mexico or from 3,000 miles away. They're the freshest fruits and veg.s around too. No chemicals added to preserve freshness and stuff. Great, isn't it?

Thats one of the beauties of living in Israel. I use to do all my veggie and fruit shopping there and the benefits are great; Buying the stuff in the machane yehuda is both cost cutting and fresher fruits and veggies

Emah-

I didn't ask for any prices. They just rang me up.
