Vitoria has an outdoor market every Thursday and Saturday morning. There you can find the freshest produce, wine, honey, cheese, and the pushiest women... I have bruises... really...

Below are the links to other views from around the world.  Sweet Bonnie´s theme for next week  is "the great outdoors."  So brush off your trusty boots! Esti you are up next.

Hahhaa...the pushiest women??...hhaha..I'm laughing now, but I sure would kick them reaaaalll hard if I would be there. Can't stand women like that.
Looking at the bread reminds me that I still need to eat breakfast...I'm off now for a coffee and some biscuits. XXX, Carmie.

trinsch said...

oh, i love local markets like that. in tel aviv it's all year round, every day. and there's always energy. and i'm pretty sure the ladies around here could push your ladies any day. or, they will just run you over with their little trolleys.

isabelle said...

I love your photos ...
You are welcome in Nantes anytime !!

la lune dans le ciel said...

J'adore ces ambiantes !!à très bientôt... :))

A Captured Reflection said...

Looks lovely and really tasty. Pity about those pushy women though :-) Have posted my Corner View this week.

Le blÖg d'Ötli said...

Lovely market... With your pictures, your know how to give the desire to come...

Ruth said...

God I love shopping in Spain!! The food markets especially...my favourite was the food market in Barcelona (I forget the place but the one in the city centre that is open all the time). I would so tolerate pushy women if we had one here...

l i s e said...

Caroline said...

I remember having bruises after my time in Spain too
: ) Love these photos, especially the relishes!

C.T. said...

(Uh..Jane?....Mail me at carmiet69@yahoo.com for some Amsterdam info, if you still want some.)

Ian said...

Spanish markets are great: such wonderful local produce.

Kristina * said...

markets are just the best - and your photos are so lovely...

p.s.: took a little tour around this week's corner view, which is so nice and inspiring. i guess you're already chock-a-block with participants, but if you were ever considering taking someone new on, i'd love to be on your list... ;)

Cabrizette said...

Mmm... I'm hungry now !! I love markets.

Jeannette said...

Mmmmm, those marmelades look just yummie.
Poor you...next time wear some protection..or ...take Carmie with you. ;)
Big hugs, Jeannette

state of bliss said...

Hello Jane :)
Lovely photos. I LOVE markets and of course my post couldn't be about anything else :)

Hope you're having great day,
Kasia

Crescent Moon said...

It's too bad about the bruises, but the market looks great!
The next time a man says anything about women being the weaker sex, maybe we should just sent him there with a shopping list.

Schanett said...

this is exactly what I like!!!
no - LOVE!!!

Kristina * said...

thank you, jane! ;)

Ian said...

One thing I've noticed from this week's Corner View tour is that it seems to be the radish season all over the world. It is here too. They were the first vegetable that I grew successfully in my garden in Spain, so I'm rather fond of them. My peppers were a disaster.

Francesca said...

You can see it in this country also, how for some women markets and grocery shopping in general is their time to bring out all their aggressiveness ...

kim said...

now i know i'll never get through all of today's amazing posts...i drool over every food shot, linger over each photo, read every comment, and then wonder where the time has gone! thanks for starting my day off right!

ladybug-zen said...

absolutely gorgeous photos. i really miss markets like that.

Juddie said...

Hi Jane, thank you for visiting my blog! I'm sure I'll be visiting your lovely blog regularly too :-)

Samantha S said...

The market looks wonderful. I have very fond memories of Spanish markets as a little girl

Joyce said...

Oh Jane... were your ears ringing last night? I was telling some friends, how I am falling in love with Spain. Your photos are doing it!! My husband mentioned if I needed a sabbatical I should go over there for 1-6 months. Tempting... Spain and Italy I might not come back! Then you mentioned the pushy women- I can get that here. LOL... I love your market I would be in cloud 9! Many hugs.... xoxo

Cate said...

DRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOL. love the jam(?) containers tied with colored ribbon or are they rubber bands. simple and beautiful.

i'm sure that you can elbow those spanish ladies out of the way to get your shopping done, jane. it's a fine art.

Bonnie said...

those artichokes look amazing ! i'd love to get my hands on a few of those !! i love the markets in spain. and i had to laugh when you brought up the pushiest women ! so true !! so so true !!

i have to say, i so enjoy this corner view each week !! it is such fun to go around and visit so many different countries ! it was a great idea you came up with ! thanks so much ...

Allison said...

Amazing photos! I find that it is very common here that people bump into to me and never acknowledge that anything had ever happened... they just keep going. That is why I must learn a few "come back" phrases.

This past weeks posts were also great, but I have been a little preoccupied and haven't had the time to say so. Love the view!

Kathy said...

Pushy people anger me!! But the market looks scrumptious!

the little travelers said...

This looks so fun! But I'll be the old German ladies could give the Spanish a run for their money in the pushy department!

Crescent Moon sent me here because I just posted a market from Berlin yesterday - but I don't get how to post it?

All these markets look fantastic!

kyndale said...

you are such a good hostess! Love the pictures. I wish I could go to Spain for a visit again, the food was one of the best parts of our honeymoon.

sunnymama said...

I love your market pictures! The produce does look wonderful. Hope you don't have too many bruises :) I've posted my first corner view this week. Thanks for the wonderful idea and letting me join in :)

sunnymama said...

I noticed people are adding the links to other corner views in their posts, but I'm not sure how to do this.

Ritva said...

dear jane,
thanks again!
north salutes south!
hugs!

The Girl in the Yellow Shoes said...

Oh how I miss European markets! (Although I don't think I need to be around pushy women!) That market looks absolutely delightful!

malo said...

Love markets like that and I wish we had something similar here. Your photos are just great.

Erin said...

I just bought the boys 2 new canvas produce bags yesterday in anticipation of the outdoor markets that will start opening up soon. Seeing these photos is making me all the more excited!

outi said...

i love outdoor markets. where ever i go, i have to always check them:)

MODsquad said...

Jane! Your photos are so fantastic!! I love your 'view' on Spain! Thanks so much for the daily trip there! I look forward to it every morning!
...Lisa

caitlin said...

Very cool! (all except those pushy women.. i would just push them right back) Those pictures make me want to go to Spain (once again!) Also I'm excited for the great outdoors next week. I have been needing an excuse to go hiking!

janis said...

Tortas! Reminds me of when my grandmother used to make them. She was Spanish and I always loved the way she said "torta" in her accent. Ole!

Cris Siqueira said...

skymring said...

Dana said...

I understand what you mean by the pushy women. . . happens here too. I've learned not to take it personally, but have yet to find the nerve to push back.

Elizabeth said...

I'll take one of those pieces of bread. Thanks for the shopping trip!

The VIPs said...

this is such a lovely idea- how do I sign up?

Crescent Moon said...

Oh, by the way, I was never able to do anything about the bruscheta craving you caused me to have yesterday, because the big bottle of Balsamic vinegar shattered all over the kitchen floor. Oh well, off to do more shopping. : )

Kari said...

pushiest woman - that's funny!
Great pictures - you make Spain look so beautiful!

Dorte said...

Great post and wonderful photos ... I like the one about the pushy ladies - they are down here too and with small trolleys :-)

n a t s u m i said...

mmmm yummy... I would love to go there and buy some homemade jams and torta bread!! Thank you or the love photos!! ox

Kimmie said...

I enjoy shopping at our local markets too! The freshest of the freshest produce can be found there - plus gardening advice and plenty of local political opinions too!

denise said...

Oh, beautiful photos! Our summer farmer's market is huge - tens of thousands attend each weekend. Summer market is just starting!

Lisa said...

Bruises? That's crazy, why so pushy? And I thought Americans were pushy, at least I've never come home with bruises.

Ida Nielsen said...
