I love my #apple vendor. It is a #LuckyDay. Those great old variety apples that are crisp and tart. It always reminds me of how apples are supposed to taste. These are grown in San Juan just up the mountain from #Tepoztlan. He doesnΒ΄t have a stall so you just have to be lucky as he walks around with his buckets of apples. #eatlocal #buylocal #savelocalvarieties #mytepoz #LaVillaBonita #CulinaryVacation #foodieparadise
