Farmers' Market & Lunch

canarybird01November 11, 2006

Yesterday I met my friend Anne who has just arrived back from her summer/fall stay in England. I picked her up as well as another lady friend and we went to the main city farmers' market, a supermarket and a frozen food store. Had a great time shopping around and we managed to fill my car with food. I was thrilled to find that the frozen food shop ....(amazing place) had pork spareribs - not salted pork - from the Spanish mainland, an unbelievable selection of fish, meats, frozen berries and fruit mixes. I'm definitely going back there again. I bought spareribs which we'll have for Sunday dinner.

We hadn't planned on having lunch together so I took the girls home and as it was late, Wolf and I decided to walk up the street and try out a pretty little place which has just reopened - a small Andaluz-style cafe with German ownership which advertised homemade lentil soup with wieners. It was pleasant there and although we had to wait for the food to heat, the lentils were good.

Here's the photos together in a small album......I'll be posting pics of the market fruit & veg tomorrow. The mangoes were heavenly! The market women were handing out lovely slices for us to taste at each juicy....we all bought some!

Sharon, I have got to get to Tenerife some day. It just looks like heaven. What a pretty market.

I was at the Reading Terminal Market in Philaelphia last week and wished I had a camera with me. It's a very special place, but has more of a gritty city quality than your spot.

How nice to be able to just walk up the street to a charming cafe. Thanks for sharing these glimpses of your life.

I just love all those fresh vegetables and fruits you have and I remember you said that you couldn't find unsalted pork spare ribs, so I'm happy you've found a place to get them. If I lived with all those little restaurants, though, I probably wouldn't cook very much.

So, did you have ribs yesterday?

Beautiful and enjoyable, as always.

I'm going to stow away some day and jump ship at the Canary Islands! It is eternal paradise in spring where you live.
