Harvest Festival in my kitchen!

So, in our corner of North London, grocery markets are thin on ground. Basically our only local shopping option is a small Tesco supermarket... until now. Out of nowhere a HUGE fruit and vegetable market has opened on the high street. Amazing. I was so gobsmacked I immediately whipped out my camera to take a picture. Annoyingly, the manager was not happy with me snapping shots and grumpily told me "no photos" while wagging his finger in my face. I managed to refrain from telling him to shove his vegetables up his arse, and skulked off to fill my basket. And fill it I did.

I lugged my 3 sacks of booty home and spread the haul out on the kitchen counter. Check it out:

I felt like a contestant on MasterChef, about to do the Invention Test. What shall I make...?

I got:
Potatoes, onions, courgettes, cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, carrots, button mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, lemons, ginger, red chillies, beetroots, radishes, bananas, pears, strawberries, and one of my favourites, chinese pears.

Amazingly, all of this cost only... £12.70. I was stunned, and as a struggling artist on a budget, very happy. So long, little Tesco. You have been outclassed.
