Sri Lanka Fruit Seller

Fruit Store, Kandy, Sri Lanka

If you’ve read Migrationology before, you probably already known that I consider fruit to be one of the world’s most amazing things.

Fruit is specifically designed only to be eaten. The delicious fruit store in Kandy, Sri Lanka, was beautiful – and the vendor was slicing away and giving us samples of fruit!

Do you love food and travel too?

If so, I'd love to give you my FREE street food guide, "41 Irresistible Meals You'll Travel to Eat," plus you'll receive exclusive street food updates (it's free)!

      Hey Lindsay, no I’m not in Kandy, this is just an photo from my previous visit. That is hilarious you bought fruit from that guy, he must have been the friendly guy – which he definitely as! Yes, I loved wood apples. I didn’t find that shop, but I the entire time I was in Sri Lanka my friend and I were carrying bags of wood apple around with us. And I’ve since found wood apple a few times in Bangkok and everytime I see it I have to buy it!

    That is one of the things I miss… vendors like that. In the US you might find a farmer’s market or a roadside stand, but rare to find a small enterprise like that with so much fresh variety. Good find Mark!

    I’ve been perusing your photos of Sri Lanka for a while now, and it’s making me incredibly excited to go back next summer!

    I left when I was four, so all I have are these hazy memories of getting fish cutlets with my grandpa and begging street vendors for rambutans (mom wouldn’t buy them because she thought I had an addiction).

    Thanks for the amazing photos!

    Take care.
