Entry Arch of Mercado Público in Cádiz, Spain

At Plaza de la Libertad on the property of a former monastery is the must-visit Mercado Público. The farmers’ market is behind a Neoclassical facade with Doric columns. Inside are over 150 stalls of fresh fish, meat, vegetables and fruit. Watching the bustling crowds of locals inspect, squeeze, select, bargain and carry their family’s next meal away in plastic bags is lots of fun. If these displays make you hungry, then find the stands serving sushi, cheese, tapas, wine and beer. They make a perfect lunch in the Andalusian sunshine.
