We spent the morning at the local market in search of fish to feast on for dinner. It’s a tale of the tails!
Some of the fresh fish looked amazing. A majority of the catch isn’t even found in the U.S. If you’re a seafood lover, then you’ve got to come down to the fish market.
A local left their bike all alone while they went in search of fresh cut meats and vegetables at the market.
During the summer months, the river levels are lower, so some of the boats beach on the sand. The tarps keep out the sun during the hot afternoons.
We swear this little guy was talking to us. He was later used to attract pink dolphins with no success.
In the marina pier, there were more vendors selling colorful vegetables and fish. There we can see heirloom tomatoes, lemons, cilantro, and a traditional spicy salad dressing sauce that contains malagueta.
While we were at the fish market with Louro, our cook in Santarém, this cat was lounging in the middle of the aisle waiting for scraps.
