Day 15 of my 2013 challenge to take a photo a day for 365 days.
My early morning jaunt this morning was out to our village market. Spain is famed for its markets and within a 20km radius of my village you can go to a different market every day of the week. The format is often the same, depending on the size of the market, with lots of fresh fruit and veg, hardware, bedding, clothes, churros stands, leather items such as wallets and handbags and of course, my favourite, shoes!!
Our village market is quite small, appropriate to the size of the village but it is not just a place to buy, it is also a meeting place for locals and often a ten minute trip to buy fresh fruit turns into a two hour trip because of the stopping and talking with people, one of the things I love about Spain.
