I go to the Central Market to get fresh fruits and produce at least once a month. Even though my country converted to the Metric system back in 1979, in the market, supermarkets, hardware stores, they still sell items using the British (imperial) or American measurement system.
Here, the vendor is weighing some sweet peppers for us on an antique scale… to the left, just in front of the pumpkin, she has sugar beet for sale. Those are one pound or two pound weights on the scale.
“What a pound for your sweet peppers?”
“Sweet peppers is $3 a pound today…”
