Our walk continues past the Custom House Plaza and around the Museum of Monterey. The outdoor murals are very colorful and depict the surroundings of the Monterey area. Public restrooms are available near the front entrance of the museum.

The Old Monterey Marketplace is down the street from the Old Fisherman’s Wharf on Alvarado St between Del Monte and Pearl. It operates year-round on Tuesdays and sells the freshest most beautiful colored fruits and vegetables from vendors all over California. Monterey is in very close proximity to the agricultural fields of Salinas and Watsonville. That’s directly from the field to your table!

Too bad the place that we’re staying at doesn’t have a kitchenette, I would love to cook and eat all the vegetables here! I did buy some Medjool dates, Fuyu persimmons, Thompson green grapes and Satsuma mandarins. The dates just melts in your mouth with a lingering buttery caramel taste, the persimmons are crunchy and sweet, the grapes are small and pops with flavor and the mandarins are thin skinned and each segment burst out with a sweet slightly tangy taste-it’s all delicious!

Come and see what I see……………….

I love to eat fruits and vegetables because they contain so many different shapes and colors and they all taste different.
