I recently ate and drank my way through Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, and while at times things were very foreign to me, most of the time it felt a lot like home. It was hot, humid and I almost always had a beer in my hand.
The Mercado Modelo is full of interesting characters and beautiful produce. I had a few bites, got proposed to and snapped some gorgeous pictures.
Below you'll find a visual tour of the market. Be on the lookout for a post on all my experiences in the Dominican Republic!
|Plantain carts and motorcycles. This is Santo Domingo.|
|Habaneros with a side of eggplant.|
|Peppers and potatoes.|
|Yucca is almost guaranteed to be on every table in the Dominican Republic.|
|Drying flowers hang in nearly every booth.|
|Assorted hanging meats.|
|Bottles full of roots are strung up all over. Pour rum inside and you'll have Mamajuana, a local aphrodisiac.|
|While this man hacked heads of cabbage into slaw at an alarming rate, he also took the time to propose. |
We haven't set a date yet.
|4ft. tall cinnamon sticks. No joke.|
|Seeds and fresh eggs.|
|Flowers, grass reeds and palm leaves.|
|The prettiest beans in all the land.|
|The cashew fruit.|
|Bird's Eye chilis.|
This trip to Santo Doming, DR was provided through trade with the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism.
