Deliveries made simple

Walking around San Miguel de Allende is an experience and I love the manner in which the deliveries are made.  No special boxes with elaborate shipping labels, no fancy packaging... just the basics.  These vegetables and fruits had just been bagged from the farm and brought into town to be delivered to many of the small little produce stores around town. 
The taxi came straight from the market where these beautiful floral arrangements were made and delivered to the front of the Parroquia church in the jardin (main square) just in time for the wedding.  I can't not see this happening stateside.
Not only is the truck bed loaded with poblano peppers a delight to the eye, the hearty aroma  wafting through the air when you walk by is delicious.
There are greenhouses near by San Miguel that grow these tall and vibrant Glads.  Wednesday afternoons are when the flowers are delivered to the market.  Roses are delivered a few times during the week.  Many times I have had to take a cab home because I went overboard on buying flowers for the house.
This man had pulled into the loading dock area with his truck full of heads of lettuce.  Some days there is the delivery of beef.  Men are rushing down the aisles to the back of the market where the butcher stalls are located carrying freshly butchered cow carcasses.  You definitely want to jump out of the way because they do not stop or slow down with that load on their back.
You can't get any fresher than this!
