Maria has been a part of my life in San Pedro since I arrived here over 12 years ago. Whether I saw her every day (I lived across the street from her fruit stand for quite a while) or just every few months now that I’m on the other end of the island, she is always warm and smiling.

Happy to see me.

Maria’s fruit stand moved earlier this year – from just south of town across from the Yacht Club to her new locale – at the entrance to the Escalante/DFC area.

And this is the first time I saw it…and her…since the move. Maria’s is so great for fresh juices and salsa but then I spotted this GORGEOUS guacamole!
