    Choi Yeong-suk went to the market yesterday. First she went to a fruit stand, but because the prices were expensive she went to another stand nearby. She bought a few apples and a lot of cherries. After she left the fruit stand, she went to the meat shop. However, the quality of the meat was not very good, so she didn't buy any meat. While at the market, Choi Yeong-suk bought some rice and some fruit. There were several other things in the market, but she didn't buy any of them. She didn't buy any baked goods or dairy products. She didn't spend much money.
