Barcelona Food Fair

Spain food fest 2Olives!  Oh my!  On our first day in Barcelona we headed out on foot to see what we could see.  Almost right away we ran into a festive food fair with everything from artisanal cheeses and beers to huge crusty loaves of bread to this vendor of Spanish olive varietals.  I must admit I didn’t even know that olives came in orange!  For €1 we received the tumbler of olives with the toothpick AND a small tin of Malden salt.  Each type had a distinct flavor and texture.  What fun!

Before we were through we also had a fruit smoothie made only of fruit, luscious cheesecake without a crust (what a great idea), and locally produced beers.

Ok, although crowded, we were beginning to settle into Barcelona!

Clear the weeds

Breathe and bask

Look up


Forest gifts

Waiting for me

Wild black raspberries!
