The market itself is divided into various but somewhat ambiguous sections depending on the type of food available, almost all of which is very local, very fresh and very traditional. Some of which, for someone who has never even been into a Spanish supermarket, for example, can be quite a surprise, specifically the goriness of the meat displays being one of them!

we also find row upon row of "Jamon" (Pronounced ham-on) which is the staple dry-cured Spanish meat that is seen in bars across the country, and an integral part of daily life in Spain. The Spanish take their Jamon very seriously and many different grades of this can be found varying in price and quality, the best being "pata negra" or "Black hoof" which are from black pigs which forage freely in fields and eating only acorns.
