Sampling the local flavor at a Croatian fruit market

IMG_3419-2

The heat is oppressive as we navigate the narrow, labyrinthine marble streets of Split, blindingly white in the midday sun. A light sea breeze greets us as we pop out onto a harbor-side street. A small army of blue umbrellas is just past us and we catch a glimpse of bright greens, pinks and oranges. A closer look reveals a beautiful, enticing fresh fruit market. Golden olive oil beckons to us from their glass containers. Half-cut watermelons and peaches are enough to make the weary, overheated traveler’s mouth water in anticipation. The price for this slice of nirvana is only five Croatian kuna.
