Farmers' Market in front of UNU

 I forgot to ask his name or his shop name.  Thanks to him.

We had little chat and he told me how to cook this vegetable... colorful Swiss Chard.  "  Cook it with anchovy , it is good.  If boil it little before that, that will remove bitterness. "

Carrots and Swiss Chard I bought from him.

At this kind of market, chatting, interacting with farmers or people who made the products is additional fun.
