I’m so glad that you all have enjoyed my Haiti posts: The People and The Food. Writing about my trip to Haiti has been a great way for me to reflect on my time there and always brings back so many memories!

Tuesdays are the Market days in Thiotté and it is an event that is missed only by a few. The market is complete with the expected – avocados, beans, rice and fruit.  And then there is the unexpected – the buckets of random pills, the fish sitting out in the sun and some voodoo potions. I love visiting the markets in foreign countries and I was so grateful that I got to visit a market in Haiti, it certainly did not disappoint!

Rows of cabbage


Beans


Oranges


Beautiful Avocados


Haitian Bread


Not sure what these are – anyone know?


Fresh Coffee Beans


Fish anyone?


Seafood Counter


You’ll never guess what we had for lunch on Tuesday…


I apologize if this horrifies anyone


The voodoo potion – you can use on your husband or boyfriend to tell if they are cheating on you – not sure if this has been scientifically proven or not…


The donkey parking lot

    Such great photos.

    I really enjoy seeing how other cultures live. How long were you in Haiti?

    Did you dress to blend in as best you could? Sorry if these are stupid questions but I’m really curious.

    Happy Holiday’s!

      I don’t think the questions are stupid at all! I was in Haiti for 7 days – but will definitely be going back, I LOVED it (in case you couldn’t tell)!
      Well, with my blonde hair and light skin, blending in was not going to happen! Since most of my time there was spent in a clinic I wore loose pants and t-shirts – modest and comfortable. Oh and a dress for mass, which everyone was dressed up for. The older women often wore dresses – but it all depends on what you have and what kind of work you do…

    I enjoyed your pictures. I am a proud Haitian who hasn’t been home for many years. I’m glad that you’ve visited and enjoyed it. I am an inventor and I have a online business called make a statement stupid (www.makeastatementstupid.com) and I am trying to help my fellow Haitians with profits from the business. God bless you.

    Hi,
    Enjoyed your post on Haiti. The vegetable you didn’t know the name of is called ‘breadfruit’. It is commonly found the Pacific Islands.The green one with kinda corrugated skin – between the photo of the bread and the fresh coffee beans.

    Happy Holidays to you and yours.

    i think markets are one of the most interesting and telling things about a country. and yes, the way seafood/meat is handled in other countries terrifies me too. hence why in thailand, i became a vegetarian :)

    LOVE YOU GIRL! hope you had a wonderful christmas! chat soon :)
