The Ocean of Humanity

Today is market day. At least, it is at the Queen Victoria Market or commonly known as Vic Market. It seems as if everyone is here to shop, to eat and in general just to be there.

I am spoilt for choices when it comes to fruits, vegetables and meat. The most difficult decision I have to make is what to buy and who to buy from. It has become habitual to buy the same food from the same store. I realised that I am consistently buying potatoes from the same stall.

Summertime is also the best season at the Vic. Its warm, sunny and crowded. The diverse variety of fruits entices me to sample frequently and also to buy too much.

The people, in general, are also a great bunch. Its crowded and yet, most people are patient; enough to inch forward slowly along the numerous aisles. I have yet to experience or observe any people-rage, trolley-rage or pram-rage. Everyone seems happy enough with the slow pace. Why that behaviour changes once they are in a vehicle is something beyond me.

So, if you are off for some fresh fruits and vegetables, try the Vic Market!
