today in valencia is the mad day of throwing tomatoes – this festival started around 1945 and has just grown in size and popularity!   you have to love the spanish for their eccentricities and traditions.

i loved the interesting array of vegetables from natoora and fern verrrow vegetables – their displays looked like art pieces – i have never seen so many beautiful shades of string beans.
