Whitechapel Market, the plums are here

The season is almost over, but I bought all these plums for a pound in Whitechapel Market. I love the culture of bowls of fruit and veg for a pound, and I can never resist the bargain of delicious ripe fruit that has to be eaten immediately. Once I have bought all this fruit, as a point of honour, I have to eat it up before it goes bad because I am incapable of throwing food away. In fact, I never ate so much fruit and veg in my life before I came to live in Spitalfields, which is a good thing. It certainly keeps everything moving, if you know what I mean – which brings me back to the plums because I couldn’t resist eating them all, so now I’ve got to run…

    Isn’t it strange that you live in the city and have access to the most seasonal fruit flowers and veg and I live in ‘the country’ and have to get mine at the supermarket?
    I am so enjoying this blog which comes highly recommended but I hardly dare comment. I feel like a trespasser.
