The divine hand of the other world

I was walking home from Megumin’s daily explosion and came across the Axel vendor street.
“Come one, come all! Boy, do we have a treat for you guys today! High level ingredients! Fresh fruits and vegetables! You can’t find them anywhere else!”
The grocery stand owner was doing some kind of raffle event and yelling at the top of his lungs.
The produce in this world can be very hard to deal with.
They fly; they body slam you from the air; they squirt juice in your eyes. Things that should not be possible for things that grow in soil.
But, even the most troublesome ones are still at the mercy of nature, and right now it’s freezing outside. Some will fly away in search of warmth like birds, while others will hide and hibernate through the winter.
Because of this, they’re very expensive at this time of the year, and only nobles can afford the ones grown in greenhouses.
“Kazuma. What’s the matter? Did you want to pick up something for dinner tonight?”
“Nah, I have to carry you home, don’t I? Besides, the three of you are having a girls’ night out with Chris and Yunyun, right? Then I’ll just go out for dinner after I drop you off.”
As I was just about to leave the vendor street –
“Our prizes today are fresh produce rich in experience points! Pumpkins, watermelons, and matsutake! You heard right! The top prize is the incredibly rare matsutake!”
