Peas (and other stuff), please!


This is a first for me. Fresh peas in Dakar! And shelled at 1,500cfa/kilo, way too good to pass up. Sold by the vendors in front of Parcours / Chez Hoballah / The French Fry store on the Corniche. (If you go into Parcours, they have Skittles, M&Ms, Starburst and Kit Kats. You know, to balance out those healthy peas.)

Also in season: cherry tomatoes, roma tomatoes, strawberries, sweet corn, Malian mangoes, avocados and green beans. Charentais melons are on their way out.

Anyone seen fresh peas elsewhere in Dakar?
