Market Mornings #2

In Uripa, Apurimac I witnessed something that many had told me about. Instead of using money, they buy and sell by trading products. These ladies were trading fruits, one was giving the oranges & limes and the other brought fruit back from what grows in her area. This all took place using the Quechua language, one that I do not yet understand.

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.
