The 'Tamu' in my place..

>> Sunday, September 28, 2008

The marketplace in my place is known as "Tamu". Locally means 'meet', tamu is where the local farmers sell their product ranging from vegetables, plants, food like cakes, cookies, chickens, fruits, rice, clothes and varieties of other farmers local food and drinks. The tamu is held every Thursday and Sunday. I have the chance to go to the tamu this morning and managed to snap some pictures with my handphone resulting images that were not very clear. I remembered to bring the camera but left it at home as its too daring for me to shot in unashamed manner haha whats the big deal.  

seller busy arranging the veggies..

ferns and tapioca leaves eaten as veggies

so tired I take a snooze first..

bananas, lemon grass, long beans..

more beans, brinjals, gingers, cucumbers,

local bananas, bananas flowers, starfruits

local pumpkins

young green bananas best for banana chips

seed pods of petai or stink beans

peeled petai or stink bean (has strong smell)

local rice also sells here

varieties of kampong rice..

kampong rice/village rice price..

Mostly people would prefer the local food as the veggies are believed to have less fertilizers and cheap compare to veggies sold in the regular market, what is more? the veggies quantity.  Sellers also tend to sell the veggies in cheap prices when noon time is coming as other sellers packing their things home.

Thank you Sandie. Stink beans? not my favorite. My husband is. It is believed to 'wash and clean' the kidney. Eating them will have your mouth, your urine smells strong like the bean can see the picture after it has been cooked in my sister's blog.
