Mercat de Bonavista

Although not strictly part of the city,  the Mercat de Bonavista is reached after a short 13 minutes bus ride and everyone  flocks there for some bargain shopping on a Sunday.  The Mercat the Bonavista is a large area filled with hundreds of stalls selling cheap clothes, fantastic fruit and vegetables, olives, dubious art, household goods, live poultry, cheese and meats.

This is the time to buy oranges by the bucket loads as they are coming in to season and the air was saturated with their wonderful scent. That and roasted chickens which were turned on spits from the surrounding eateries and you get the olfactory basenotes of Mercat de Bonavista
