Pictures from the Ferria (Market)
Still recovering from my double shot of yuck. The cold is “mostly dead”, but so is my GI tract. Just when I thought it was safe to eat again. But we must carry on, so here’s a short but somewhat substantive post. Cecile and I have both talked about the local ferria and how we love going there to buy our produce and various other things (flowers are cheap and last over a week). We’ve been hesitant to take pictures because it seems like kind of an a**hole or touristy thing to do, but time’s running out and you, gentle readers, deserve pictures. So here are some from our most recent visit.
Some are at weird angles or cropped oddly so I could keep people’s faces out of the shots, and this doesn’t give a sense of the scope of it: several aisles of stalls all filled with various selections of fruits, vegetables, eggs, olives & pickled items, fish, flowers & more.
Loved being able to shop this way, looking forward to the farmer’s markets back home, but it’s not the same. Not better or worse, just different. Maybe I’ll try and explain why and how in another post.
