Market in Malaga

Swiftly approaching middle age, stubbornly perched on my shoulder like organ grinder's monkey, once more reminded of its existence. "Whaat?! The price has gone up again?!" I found myself moaning out loud as I was buying tickets to C1- train operating between Fuengirola and Malaga.

The line is one of the busiest in the country and the journey from our station of Benalmadena-Arroyo de la Miel takes less than half an hour.

As soon as one leaves Malaga's central station on Almeda Principal street there's the market of Mercado de Atarazanas. Though there are supermercados at every street corner, the market culture is very much alive. And there are few things this little piggy loves as much as going to the market!

There's fish...




and meats...




and cheeses...




And mushrooms...




and nuts galore...




and dried fruits of all sorts...




and about 600 different sorts of olives...




and at least as much variety when it comes to spices...




and don't even get me started on the vegs!
