|In honor of Sabel (a co-intern at Ludobites) who taught me how to clean squid... no, i didn't buy any|
|Not sure what these are - but they look interesting - and I don't see these in LA|
|Frying fish? Sardines?|
|I usually avoid the center of the market - that's where all the fish are. They look so menacing and bizarre.|
|Some knife! She was actually the friendliest of the fish mongers... all the fish sold at her stand were from Galicia (to the north) or locally in the Mediterranean. She was filleting Sole from the Galicia area.|
|escargots! fresh live snails!|
How would I describe this market to my Angeleno friends? It's kinda like the Farmer's Market at 3rd & Fairfax, yet not...
And you think you're gonna get organic and local stuff here? Newp. Not quite. I did opt for Fuji apples from France over the Pink Lady apples imported from Chile. Think either are organically grown? Newp.
When I asked about organic or biologica fruits and veggies - they tell me that it all looks ugly. There is no such thing as gorgeous organic produce in Barcelona. I think they just want me to give up, and buy from them.
|Be still my beating heart!|
But you know what they call these fruits? Kaki. Doesn't have the same ring as purrr-si-mon.
