Your Daily Food Markets

{Mercat de la Boqueria in Barcelona, Spain}

Throughout the last couple months of my travels, I have sampled, devoured, and monched on more varieties of food than I think I have tried in the past 5 years of my life. One of my favorite parts of this food adventure is finding the origins of these creations: the markets. Locals flock to buy their daily groceries while I get to wander around wishing I had a kitchen in my disposition at that moment to brutally attempt to whip up some sort of stupendous cuisine. Sadly this has not happened yet. (Mostly due to my lack of access to a kitchen and my undeveloped cooking skills.) Here are some of the markets I have encountered so far. You can click on the links below the pictures for better explanations.

P.S. if anyone wants to teach me how to cook various European cuisines (or any cuisines for that matter) let me know.

    beautiful photographs – meat shops always turn me off, but you’ve captured these very nicely, almost poetic!

  2. I can never tire of market pictures and going to them. There is something so comforting about food and the raw preparation of it.

    • How did you like the markets in Mexico and in South America? I have yet to visit. I love the cuisine there, so I can’t wait to explore the markets.

      • The markets in Mexico have been interesting to say the least. The meat is not displayed in an art like fashion like those in Europe – it is a raw, this is FOOOOOOOOD! type way. Very straight to the point.

  3. So fascinating! Markets speak volumes about a culture, don’t they?

    • Its so true! I love seeing the various types of food in the market made into delicious meals in the restaurants whether it be seafood, a particular vegetable or something unique. Venice for example had amazing seafood dishes. It was very blatant why when I visited the market.

    Must say fun of Spanish and Italian kitchen! 🙂 It’s interesting that for US you put all vegetable! :))) Usually first connection is McDonald’s! Still nice entry! I am very big fun of open markets and fresh groceries!

    • the US does have a bad reputation for fast food, its very true. however, Haymarket in Boston only sells vegetables. It is a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning.
