It feels only five minutes since we were last mooching around the colourful central market in Malaga but its actually been years!
The time our apartment is literally around the corner so we can get up bright and early to check out this lively scene.
No matter how many times I visit markets in Europe and further afield I never fail to be captivated by the variety and quality of products on offer.
Whether its dried fruit and nuts, local cheeses or piles of perfect fruit and veg, its all so fresh and tempting.
Apart from this. This will never be tempting! I always force myself to venture down the meat aisle just to check out which unfortunate body parts are on display!
A stall holder peers over his loaded stall of local sausages, wines and other delicacies.
A fishmonger demonstrates his descaling skills while once again I ponder the reason behind the orange vats of fatty meat!
Huge radishes glisten in stacks of glorious pink globes while spring onions the size of fists jostle for space with huge juicy tomatoes.
A last lingering look at some stacks of nuts now before we head off to find more photo subjects!
