Lithuanian Market Woman with Carved RadishesPlayful! I took this photograph of a woman selling radishes in the farmers market in Vilnius, Lithuania, in the late 1990s.

The carved radishes were decorations on top of the scale.

What is there really to say? This woman clearly brings her personality to her vegetable stand. As a bonus, her carved radishes differentiate her stand from others in the market and bring cheer to the shoppers.
