This photo was taken in March 2011 at the Talumalu Market. Talumalu is a very big market and the center of things on Saturdays when everyone is doing their shopping. Mostly vegetables and produce of all kinds, but also available are Tongan medicine, handicrafts, weaving supplies and prepared food. Bananas are a staple in the Tongan diet - and there are different kinds for different cooking. These are the bananas familiar to most Americans- buy a bunch, hang them under a breadfruit tree and they ripen in no time. Delicious!
