This is a simple song about going to the market to buy fruits and vegetables. If you  want to add other fruits or vegetables, or foods, go to the Google Translate page.

You can use the other printable pages I’ve included here to make a book with photos and words to use when teaching this song. If you want all of the song lyrics one page, they are below. Please note, the recorded version of these lyrics are broken into three songs , each song using 3 of the fruits or vegetables. This will make the song more manageable  to use with younger children and give you more control over which and how many verses you want to use.
