I love it when a new market opens up. Two new ones opened up near me. One market is literally down the block from me. The regular sort of markety things can be found there. Fruit, eggs, herbs, milk, bread. I can quickly run down the block if I need anything. The other market is a Korean market and its between my apartment and my inlaws. (The Korean market is however much closer than the large Asian market). Anyway I found a Korean Melon there. The texture is sort of pear like but the meat is definitely melon. Sort of like honeydew. It was neat to try a different fruit and have access to it.

Sounds good. My parents grow cantaloupe in their garden and its really good.

Ooh ... I love having stuff like that close to me. They just opened a "gourmet market" down the street from us. It has gourmet food items like fancy salsas and jellies, etc. But what I actually like there is that they do a different pick up dinner item every night and you can just drop in and get it ... like chicken enchiladas or lasagna or something. Very good.

We tasted one of those in Korea! They are good, aren't they? It's so much fun to try new things! :-)
