Happy ever after in the marketplace




 What better way to spend a sunny Saturday morning than wandering in the borough market? The colors, the smells, the people and most of all the quality and freshness that you can't find anywhere else in the city.

After shopping for fresh veggies and fruit we stopped to get some fish.

Fresh fish

Yummy!
























The results of our shopping became a simple and yet delicious dish: mexican shrimp cocktail.
