The Gomidas shooga is up and running. This is one of Hagop Bedrossian’s favorite shopping spots.

Almost everything you could want is in season and the prices are not all that bad.

We went to the shooga to get stuff for salad and ended up picking up a couple of kilos of green-beans. The price of green-beans a month ago was 2,000 dram a kilo. Now they are 300 dram a kilo and in a couple of weeks they should be about 150 dram.

It looks like after waiting a couple of years, we will once again have apricots. This is a fruit that I have missed and though we didn’t pick any up today, we will be visiting my fiancés aunt, who lives in a village on the outskirts of Yerevan to pick them off the tree, which we are told is weighed down with fruit, just waiting for us.
