Browsing through street produce markets can be one of the most exciting aspects of exploring a new country. There are so many fresh fruits and vegetables available, and many times some new and unique ones, and a great way to get cheap, easy recipes for backpacking.

We have compiled a list of fruits and vegetables found around the world. Each food’s page shows:

  • How to select and store the item
  • Nutritional value of the item
  • Sample easy-to-make recipes to try once you get back to the hostel

As with everything on this website, we appreciate your input! If you have questions or comments please let us know!
