Tuoreita suomalaisia herneitä! - Fresh Finnish peas!

Jyväskylä's kauppatori (outdoor market) seems a lot better this year than it has been during the past few years. I guess is has to do with the fact that it isn't surrounded by construction sites any more, and a huge new apartment building has been built right next to it.

Hanna and I decided to swing through the tori this afternoon, and I'm glad we did, since today was the first day this summer that fresh Finnish peas were for sale.



Summer is definitely here. Peas, fresh from a farm in Sauvo.





Kaisan Kotimarja ja vihannes always has a nice selection of produce as well as friendly service. I recommend their stall for your berry and vegetable needs.





No description necessary.





A shot of the Jyväskylä kauppatori. This photo was taken in the afternoon, so most of the booths were already taken down for the day. If you want to get the best possible produce you have to get there early. The market opens for business at 7 a.m and shuts down at 3 pm during the summertime.
