Burgos Municipal Food Market
Grocery shopping in Spain can be a different experience, especially if you skip the large supermarkets and go directly to the municipal markets. This gallery shows photos of both municipal market stalls, as well as some parts of a modern supermarket. In the market, you will see many small proprietors' stalls, each selling their individual specialty - meat, fresh fruit and vegetables, ham, cheese and sausage makers, bakeries and seafood. The modern supermarket meat and seafood departments are patterned after the fresh markets.
The city of Burgos has a municipal food market in the city center that was recently renovated. Pictured here is the banner at the entrance as one is taken up the escalator. Although there are many supermarkets in the city, the municipal food market is still alive and well, attracting many shoppers who live in the downtown area.Continue to 2 of 14 below.
