All you need is love... of food...

Click on the photos to enlarge them...


I took some of these at a local Sunday Market on the Costa Blanca...








































































































Barbequed sardines, the fastest fresh food around...

A quick salad and a can of beer...
































Simple fresh food is still served by many kitchens...

For me, the bbq sardines, salad with extra olives, some good bread to sop up the juices and a pitcher of red wine, please. You do offer home delivery? *hopeful smile*

Gigi, you should know about those exotic fruit. I thought you would like the sardines.

FH, I think they are but I have never had any. I'm more into Allsorts...

Akela, those cherries tasted like cherries ought to...

Mary, I thought they were stuffed vine leaves but they turned out to be tuna stuffed sweet peppers. Really tasty.

Merisi, Rosé is my Summer drink. I love Red but it is lethal in the heat.
Home delivery? I shall direct some live sardines to Vienna. How will they get from the Med to Austria?

Queenie, once you start taking photos, you won't be able to stop...

Marcos, it was great and those sardines took no more than ten minutes to grill. Delicious!

Anna, I didn't think about it like that but every time I look at the pictures I feel like hopping back on a plane.

Hayden, I really thought you would have markets like this in the US.
I knew you'd like these photos.

Oh, I visited a market in Florida, somewhere not far from Miami...lots of fresh fruits and veggies. And West Indians :-D

Interesting. Tuna stuffed green peppers. It does sound good.

Not too different from what you would find here... sardine season also, and during this month with the "saints" festivities in most cities you can get barbecued sardines almost everywhere!

Cream,
it's less that an hour's flight! :-)
I found some more mediterranean (Apulian, i.e. Southern Italian) sardines, marinated (for the English translation, scroll down the page a little).
