The colors and sights and sounds of the crowded market was a highlight of visiting Madrid.

Fourth photograph down: Baby eels?
Aaahhh. Great guess. I think the creamy sauce is crab. But eels sound right.

Angulas in Spanish, and elvers in English…a delicacy that originated from the Basque region.
Ok! Thanks for solving the mystery. Are Angulars similar to eels? I am going to have to look it up.
Terrific shots! The food has such vibrant color – I know that the ham is legendary, but it’s the seafood I love love love – thanks for sharing!
You are most welcome, my friend.
Yes, Cindy. Angulas are baby eels!
Your photos are terrific, as always!
I appreciate your input! Thanks, Rafael.
I’m late to this, but the others are right. Elvers. Here’s a link to confirm
Great food shots, Cindy. I’m jealous of Madrid, must go there one day.
“NO PASARAN!” (If you don’t that one, look it up on Google…) 🙂
Best wishes, Pete. x
Hey, thanks, Pete! I’ve learned something new which is always a good thing. Still not sure I’d eat them, though. Just like taking their picture. 😉
Lovely photographs. I’m a little less enthusiastic about some of the food though.
Why I’m drawn to photographing fish, I don’t know, but their shine and shapes and eyes are interesting and macabre. Truth be told, there are only a few varieties I like to eat.
Some nice takes, here
Thanks, Derrick. 🙂
Looks like you are spoilt for choice with so much great fresh food and wine here, great photos, makes me feel hungry 🙂
Paul, I’d eat the Mozzerella balls and the cherries, but can’t say I’m a fan of the fish and olives. But they make excellent choices for photography!
Delicious photo’s though I might pass on swordfish 🙂
I turned the corner and there “he” was in all his horrifying glory.
That swordfish looks very cheerful minus a body. :). I always look forward to your photos.
Hi, Ian. A macabre subject. I don’t know why I am drawn to taking snapshots of fish. They are scary looking. They always seem to have a story to tell.
Those cherries look incredible. I wish I wasn’t allergic.
I wonder how long it took to line them up for display? There must have been hundreds, perfectly placed. I love the color red in nature.
That would be one thing I fear … will I find food I like. Most of that looks great.
I’m so hungry looking at this.
As I stayed in universities who rented us rooms to stay in, provided traditional college meals, big bowls, sharing bread and eating salads, soups, and the Spanish stew, spicy and delicious with three meats. . . I think if it has fish included, it is “paella.” 🙂
We had dinners in a “Grotto” and hotels, and local restaurants.
Awesome. Your trip sounds wonderful. I would love to go back and visit –and Portugal, too!
