We Scoopettes love the markets for traditional food in Spain. In Autumn, they are bursting with bright colors and textures. This photo essay takes you to three popular markets: Madrid, Barcelona, and Seville.  Big, curvy orange squashes the size of a soccer ball.  Squashes that are white, striped, or spotted are on the shelves and I have no idea what their names are.  Dozens of kinds of mushrooms.  All food, an earthy, sensuous delight.
