In his Travel News on Spain, Rick mentioned:
In this corner of Europe, farmers' markets are cauldrons of edible culture. It's common to find "pickle women" who push little banderillas (skewers of pickled olives, onions, and carrots named for the bangled spear that a matador sticks into the bull) on tentative travelers' taste buds. I'll never forget gingerly sliding an onion off the tiny spear as the matron firmly stopped me, insisting that it must be eaten all at once — the pickle equivalent of throwing down a shot of vodka. Explosivo!
Does anyone know where the farmers' market he was describing is?
Does anyone know what the Spanish call them?
