When we are in Portugal we always go to the 'feira', the market. I always enjoy going there. I like it because most things are a bit different from the markets in the Netherlands.
For example, meat of small animals (chickens, turkeys and rabbits) is often not sold as meat, but you buy the animal. Alive!! It's DIY meat ;-)
Local farmers sell fruits and vegetables.
And the butcher is a real butcher. In the Netherlands the butchers sell pre-cut meat. Often cut several days earlier. At the 'feira' they cut the meat of the bone while you're watching.
It might not be the prettiest sight, but I think it's good to know where your meat comes from.
And at the 'feira' you can clearly see where it comes from. Hello miss Piggy ;-)
