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.
The Boqueria, World Famous Market, Barcelona
Figs are in season in the late summer / early fall
The Triana Market, Seville
Gorgeous pumpkins and squash
In Spain vegetables are plentiful and inexpensive
Mercado de San Miguel, Madrid. People in Spain take time out to drink wine while shopping. The Scoopettes like that idea.
Note the little boxes of mushrooms
Squashes piled high at the San Miguel Market
Whether you’re in a restaurant or a market in Spain, always ask for what’s in season. Enjoy!
