With our grocery list in tow, off we headed to enjoy another glorious Algarvian day.  It’s not at all difficult to get caught up in the festivities of any market but especially easy on days like today when the sun is shining and all is good in the world.   We did notice that although it was well attended, people were browsing more than purchasing, which seemed to encourage the vendors to be a little more rambunctious in their actions and voices to encourage those of us that were looking, to buy.

It turned out to be a much warmer day than the forecast lead us to believe and we were finding it a bit close so……..after a quick stop at the grocery for a few things we need this week, we headed home, prepared lunch and sat in the shade of the terrace enjoying the birds, the sunshine, good company and wonderful food.   Since then it’s been a free for all.
