    Depending on how many or the same items you buy, the seller might give you a deal (1/$2 or 3/$5)

    The diversity of fruit here is amazing--and everything is grown locally and by the farmers who sell it. Absolutely worth the trip.

    I can not get over the price of papayas here.... 6 for a buck? And they are super sweet. That's crazy! In NYC they can easily run you 2-3 bucks each.
