Suva Vegetable Market..........I try to check out market places wherever I journey. They are always interesting and there is usually some kind of food that I've never seen before. The market in Suva was one of the cleanest that I've ever seen anywhere. Individual portions of vegetables and fruit were arranged on plates so you knew exactly what you were going to get for your Fijian dollar.

The second floor of the market place was dedicated to kava. More yagona roots than you could possibly drink filled every corner of the area. Some of the roots had already been pounded into the powder for kava. After lifting the iron pestle needed to make that powder, I know which form of the yagona root I would purchase.

No Idea? Turmeric.
