I am from a little town called Puttur in the state of Karnataka of Southern India. My little town has a weekly farmers market. It has farmers from all neighboring villages selling their fresh produce. In our local language kannada, farmers market is called ‘Santhe’.

My Grandma visits this market every week and buys all her vegetables from there. She says (and she is right) that it has the freshest vegetables. This week I joined her.

Here are some photos from my trip. Peak into a small town India’s Farmers Market…
