    Hello Funsters

    Next Monday ( every 2nd Monday of every month) it will the day of the traditional marquet in Algoz ( near Albufeira/ near Silves).

    Same people go to an gypsy market (like in Quarteira or Albufeira) and think is the same thing, but let me tell you that is much more beautiful... in the traditional market you will see a lot of farmers selling there products, people selling live rabbits, chickens, ducks, etc., plants for your vegetable gardem or just beautiful flowers for it...people salling tractors, tools, etc....
    well the atmosphere, the smells of the food cooking ( the traditional "Bifana" or " chicken piripiri", or the " Farturas"( farturas is a special cake...hummm so good!!!!) ) ....
    the sounds of the county people passing , people asking the prices....
    you will love it....

    so if you are near don't forget to visit it....

    Every 2nd Monday of the month.

    big hug
    Pedro
