Friday found me at the market for some fish and photos. Lies, I only ended up buying cherries to make jam, I wanted to buy fish, but I just hate cooking it, so cherries it was.
The prices at the market are excellent, which makes living or visiting here a relatively inexpensive endeavor. For example, I paid just 1 euro for 2 kilos of juicy plum tomatoes, the price of cherries was perfect for a day of jam making at just 2 euros a kilo so jam making it will be. Mr Man returns from a visit home to see his parents on Monday, and the making of jam whilst away was a promise, so I am on it.
At the municipal market, there is both an indoor and outdoor part to explore, so be sure to go into the market building itself. There is fresh fish, deli counters, fruit, flowers, housewares and more, plus you can have a coffee or drink in the cool of the shade on a hot summer day.
Outside you can buy clothing, leather goods, housewares, fresh fruit and veg, candy, shoes, even illegal cd’s. Every once in a while the police have a crack down on illegal cd and dvd sales, but for the most part they can be found in the market. Besides being of poor quality and illegally produced, the dvd’s are all in Spanish, so do not be tempted to buy such an item unless you are fluent in Spanish and you actually want to fund illegal activities here in Europe. Just an FYI you can get the real deal at the second hand store at a quarter of the price and all the money goes to feeding those less fortunate here in the area.
