The Veggie Stand Mystery

Juticalpa is not a city full of culinary wonders, neither is much of Honduras. The Vegetable stand in town because of this is pretty straight forward, they have the basics, about as extravagant as they get is grapes. But there is one thing they have that I cannot make sense of, eggplant. I have yet to see a Honduran cook with it, and only am aware of one restaurant in town that uses it… so why do they have it and who buys it?

I thought the same thing about lettuce in Honduras. People make salads out of cabbage generally (except maybe Lolita).
