There are several “farmers markets” in Old Havana. An “L” shaped alley off Calle Sol in a busy, but poor neighborhood is one of the largest.
If Cubans have money they can buy fresh fruits, vegetables, and meat. It’s a daily flurry of activity and everyone is friendly. One young man gave me a demonstration of trimming yucca with his machete. Other men were busy cutting meat and wheeling crates in and out of the alley.
