Colombo 11, Colombo, Sri Lanka
Become a fruitarian at Manning MarketBusy Manning Market anchors one end of the Pettah neighborhood in Colombo. Its vendors are happy to show off their beautiful produce, and do their best to educate a visitor to an array of unfamiliar fruits and vegetables.
The aroma of fresh pineapples wafted into the covered market as I browsed the many stalls, sampled a bit, and struck up conversations with vendors. It was a great way to learn my way around snake gourd, wood apple and other foods I would soon be enjoying at tables across Sri Lanka.
