At the Market, Segovia, Spain


We love to visit local markets when we travel.  The colors, sounds, smells - markets are such a sensory experience.    The herb vendor was the very first booth we saw at this market in Segovia, Spain.  She had all her herbs bagged up and accessories like strainers, mortar and pestles and bottles available as well.  I particularly loved the brass distiller.
Colorful flowers and mounds of gorgeous local grown garlic!














And of course in Spain, the olives, oh my,  all sizes, all colors, stuffed, pitted, name an olive and it was there.
Bags and bags of nuts.  And the notions! Multiple booths with sewing supplies.

Looks beautiful. Local is always best no matter where local maybe.

How amazing. I went the market in Israel and they had the numerous olives like you say but never sewing supplies or tea gadget booths!
