Veterinarians test sellers' milk and smetana (a type of cultured sour cream) for fat content. While meat is looked at for safety purposes, dairy is inspected to make sure customers are getting what they pay for and that no water or additives have been included. Most milk found at the market is collected that morning or the previous day, and the smetana, kifir, and brinza are made in locals' kitchens. A liter of milk will fetch 12-15 UAH ($1.89). Ask if it is svezhy or ?fresh,? and the woman selling it will pour a capful and let you taste it.
