Oh, how I love going to the sacolão (the greengrocer’s)! There are always plenty of photo opportunities and, if that wasn’t sufficient enough, hardly a visit goes by without the discovery of a new and strange variety of fruit (and believe me, there are far more exotic varieties of fruits and vegetables than the yam shown on the following photograph).
Last Sunday the guys at the greengrocer’s had piled up a phenomenal amount of oranges, on an obvious attempt at defying gravity. Actually, the sacolão has all to do with masses of piled fruits, everywhere. Do not miss the chance to visit a sacolão during your stay in Brazil.
