One of the best things about going to a market on a Saturday afternoon is that there are no crowds, plus the markets are neatly set up anticipating crowds that will follow. This is one of the many shots that I managed to capture last weekend.  Let me now explain why I picked this title. As India reels under the pressures of growing inflation, eating healthy is getting very expensive. So choose what you need wisely. And while I am at it let me list out the fruits placed on the stall starting from the top.

Top Row (L-R):  Apples, Oranges and Plums, Pears
Middle Row (L-R):  Apples and Orange, Red Apples, Pomegranates
Last Row (L-R):  Papayas, Custard Apples and Musk Melons, Mangoes
