FARE SHOPPING/LA SPESA – At the greengrocer’s – Dal fruttivendolo

Per comprare frutta e verdura, devi andare dal fruttivendolo. Vediamo come farlo in inglese.

Good morning.

Greengrocer: Good morning.
Woman: Do you have any nice bananas?
Greengrocer: Unfortunately they are not very good, they are not ripe enough. Why don’t you take some cherries? They’ve just arrived.
Woman: I was going to make some banana bread, but all right, I’ll take some cherries and bake a nice cherry pie instead.
Greengrocer: How much do you need?
Woman: One and a half a kilo is enough. I’d also like 6 tomatoes, 3 bell peppers, a box of asparagus, and bag of spinach.
Greengrocer: Here they are. Anything else, madam?
Woman: Yes, give me two kilos of baking potatoes, too, please.
Greengrocer: All right. Is that all?
Woman: Yes.
Greengrocer: £18, please.
