Delicious Chouriços, fantastic bread and farturas in the market of Tomar

Another set of photos shot at the weekly traditional market in the City of Tomar. These photos are from stalls that sell Portuguese sausages (chouriço and farinheira), cheese, bread and farturas. In the first photo you can see a red sausage called Chouriço which is typically Portuguese and Spanish, and it’s been made for centuries. In the Roman times you could already eat chouriços in the Iberian Peninsula. By the way, in Spanish it’s called Chorizo. It’s a sausage made of pork and smoked with dried red peppers (paprika). The second photo is of Portuguese bread and the third photo is of stall that sells farturas, which are dough piped in the shape of a coil, fried, then cut into about 20 centimetres lengths and rolled in sugar and cinnamon.
