The market in Alcala is always on a Tuesday and is nearly always well-attended. In recent weeks, we've had some of the best and most delicious fruit and vegetables we've ever tasted.
Today, for some reason, known best to the Alcalainos, the market was particularly busy, particularly bustling, with much shouting of wares by store-holders.
|There were pots and pans, of all shapes and sizes|
|Not sure why these were so interesting but a big crowd gathered|
|Materials - some sparkly, some plain|
|Good tomatoes for gazpacho|
|Pulses, beans and delicious dried tomatoes|
|Frutos secos (a Spanish favourite) and honey|
|Crisps, olives and yet more Spanish snacks - how they love their snacks!|
|Every herb imaginable - for infusions, teas and remedies|
|Always my favourite stall - shame I didn't quite capture the stall holder as he's rather nice too...|
And this is what I bought - some wonderful strawberries and speciality bread from Guadix.
What could be nicer?
