Pasar tani or farmer's market.

On Sunday, I went to a farmer’s market.

In Malay, we call it ‘pasar tani’.

We went to ‘pasar tani’ to buy food.

In ‘pasar tani’, people sell all kinds fresh vegetables.

    My mother loves to buy these...

    These are petai-but I don't eat them.

    We can also buy different kinds of fruits.

    Very sweet cempedak.

    These bananas are tasty when fried or cooked in syrup; but do not eat them fresh.

    There are people selling cookies.

    People also sell beef in ‘pasar tani’.
