Mercado do Bolhão

April 17, 2013

It's no secret that I love markets. I grew up accompanying my grandmother in her weekly groceries every Tuesday or Friday. Wet markets are the best! I love the hustle and bustle, the noise, the fresh seafood, the display of meats, fresh veggies, and the smell of spices.

We visited the Bolhao Market on busy saturday morning. I was very excited to poke around the market and see the different produce being offered for sale. I really wished we had rented an apartment in Porto so we could purchase the goods from the market and cook it. But alas, we walked around to get inspiration instead. I was surprised to see mostly women vendors at the market; it's usually the opposite most of the time. 

I was drooling over the different types of fish and the freshest vegetables. It was a feast for my eyes and wish I could have eaten everything I saw.
