Every area has their own market and this tour is going to take you to the local market in Crocodilopolis .The Egyptian diet depends on the fertility the Nile provided the land. The two main crops that Egyptians grow are wheat and barley; wheat is used to make bread and barley is used to make beer. This means that the primary nourishment is beer and bread. There are also many delicious vegetables the Nile provides; to name a few: onions, lettuce, beans, garlic, turnips, and corn. Though we have begun to domesticate animals it is very expensive, so the typical person only eats meat on special occasions. The average Egyptian is much more likely to eat poultry or fish from the Nile. If you are rich you can buy, or barter for more lavish foods such as meat, vegetables, fruit, birds and wine. But just because you are wealthy doesn’t mean you will only eat these fancy foods; the Pharaoh himself still dines on the basic beer and bread. We Egyptians are not lacking in our variety either, our food is prepared every way imaginable: boiled, cooked, grilled, simmered, baked, fried, and roasted, we have it all.
There are many stands at the market. If you are fortunate you can find one that sells seasonings and spices like salt, cumin, dill, coriander, vinegar, lettuce seeds: all of which are used to enhance flavors in food. There is another delightful man who sells beer flavored with honey. And if you get really lucky you might find a dessert vendor who could sell you dates, plums, figs, or melons!
