Photographer's Note

I was unsure wether I should upload this or not... I haven't asked permission for the photo, but I wanted to capture her sad look while she was talking to another woman and at the same time wanted to show what she was selling, so I posted it. The lightning conditions were poor and my camera could'nt do better. So, anyway hope you like it.

Mercado do Bolhγo, the imposing open-air market in the center of Porto, is the place to go for a firsthand look at Portuguese ingredients and how the Portuguese shop. The ground floor and upper arcade are lined with vendors selling vegetables — look for monstrous creaking machines that slice kale into filament-thin slivers for caldo verde (green soup), as well as flowers, fish (including the briny, slippery, wildly expensive perceves or gooseneck barnacles), dried beans, and live fowl, among other foods. While you're looking around, nibble on tremoηos, or brined lupini beans. The market is also a terrific place for a laugh: Brawling fishwives and bawdy vegetable women, who enjoy shocking tourists by creating X-rated shapes with their bounty, make for a good show. Sadly, the building is crumbling and is shored up by scaffolding.
