I hope that you have enjoyed your trip through the Brazil Farmers Market in Cachambi.

I usually do not spend time it US Street Fairs, however, but I found this one , RJ, Brazil interesting.  The main thing I found interesting were the food products from the United States.  That surprised me very much.

Brazil Farmers Market Summary:

Great prices can be had at Brazil Farmers Markets – Just Like the US

One dozen eggs for $1.00 @ August 2015 exchange rates is a fantastic price

Being able to get products from California, Chile or Mexico at a Brazil Farmers Market shows that International trade even for the smallest items can benefit everyone, the farms in California and the people of Brazil to be able to get the peaches they don’t have in country.
