El Rastro en El Mercado

December 3, 2016

Every Saturday and Wednesday a market, fruit and vegetables, books, wine, cakes, bread, tools, clothes, honey, junk, everything you could wish to find.

Wednesday is smaller than Saturday, though last Saturday very small due to heavy rain all morning.

Todos los Sabados.

Comida y todo.

Food and junk.

Ground floor and top floor of Municpal Market.

Mainly junk, but you can find everything: books, clothes, antiques, jewelry, knives, watches, honey, clothes …

First floor is food, fruit and vegetables, fish, little restaurants, a tea and coffee shop.

Most things can be found on this market. A strange cross between a car boot sale, farmers market and craft fair.

Todos los Miércoles.

Every Wednesday, a smaller version of the Saturday market.

Ground floor and top floor of Municpal Market.

Mainly junk, but you can find everything: books, clothes, antiques, jewelry, knives, watches, honey, clothes …

First floor is food, fruit and vegetables, fish, little restaurants, a tea and coffee shop.

There was actually more here today, than Saturday, as Saturday torrential rain, but food stores not busy.  I have never seen the tea and coffee shop busy, and cannot see it surviving. Their coffee is undrinkable.

Todos los Sábados.

Every Saturday

Ground floor and top floor of Municpal Market.

Mainly junk, but you can find everything: books, clothes, antiques, jewelry, knives, watches, honey, clothes …

Most is cheap rubbish, but can find Rolex and Omega watches (and fakes), old cameras.

First floor is food, mainly fruit and vegetables, including organic, but also fish and meat.

Like last Saturday, raining, but unlike last Saturday, not heavy torrential rain. The rain meant not as busy, but still very busy. The food stalls, as always very busy.

I decided to have  a massage. Lower back, where I was in bad pain, could feel nothing. My shoulders, OMG, the pain. It was as though knives being stuck in me. I asked afterwards. She said problem around my shoulders and that may be causing the problem lower down.

If I have a massage, I can tell where the problem. Muscles are hard. But I have never experienced pain of today.

I am feeling a little better.

Next Saturday, the Anglican Church has a market. Not as good as this market, and they have the gall to charge 1 euro entrance.

The little tea and coffee shop not recommended. Run by an Argentian couple, clueless on coffee,  the coffee undrinkable.

I learnt, as I suspected, Harry has sold up, Harry´s Goumeteria no more, though the name lives on. Harry cooked food fresh.

It does appear, as I feared, the organic fruit and vegetable stall has closed, now sells only from the farm.

First floor has become something of a mecca for food lovers.  Though sorry to see the organic fruit and vetable stall closed (maybe only for Carnival). And Harry no longer seems to be running his Gourmeteria. A new shop selling what is claimed to be high quality tea and coffee. Er, I beg to differ.  And the little Deli, whic was not doing well, until they decided to serve food, the guy no longer seems to be there. Big changes.
