I like very much, as they call it in Odessa – Kiev route or as they call it in Kiev – Odessa route. Straight, with beautiful mounds, with an ever-changing landscape. It’s just a pleasure to ride.
But when you drive for four hours, it’s better to do a stop. And I want to offer you an alternative at Poplavskiy stern. Bazzar before Uman.
The amateur of tasteless dumplings and fat refried chiburekki, Mr. Poplawskiy, of course argue that at this bazzar there are not meat, salads and soups.
But there are always a tasty fruit and berry, and the most important, there is a nut, that local people harvest there in the woods. They call it hazel.
Don’t hope that this little market is cheap. It has. But as in any bazzar, you can bargain. Well, it all depends on your mood and on a good-natured saleswoman.
Here they sell mushrooms that I didn’t dare to buy, because I don’t really know how to choose it.
Strawberries are straight from the forest, fragrant and unreal tasty. A cup of strawberries cost 15 hryvnias and when you buy it, you immediately throw it into your mouth as a cocktail.
This strawberry certainly doesn’t compare with strawberries from Vilkovo, but in the road it is a great alternative to dumplings. And they wash it right on the place.
Apricot, rich fruit, that give you the good mood, was so gentle and mellow, that it was falling apart right in the hands. Bucket – it’s a sham. In fact, in the packet there is exactly a kilogram.
The earth is strewn with skins of hazel, which local vendors immediately clean, waiting for passing shoppers.
And it the end you can see a full range of one of the stall on this wonderful bazzar.
And be on the alert, little bazzar is targeted at a client who visits him once, so they can shortchange or give a poor-quality product. And, it is hardly that you will go back because of moldy strawberries or tainted apricots.
