there was so much to see at this wonderful market, that i had to do 2 posts to fit it all in. the first photo is after i got the pig home, the second one is outside again at the meat vendor.
this is a salami pig. we call it summer sausage. i have no idea how they got the meat into that pig-shaped cloth bag but he was so cute. i bought him for my son... he likes the summer sausage. the 3 little plastic pigs around him are just these little guys i keep on top of my espresso maker ( yes, its a bit odd but i like them )
plus, pooch german girl m says that pigs in germany symbolize luck! there we are holding different shaped salamis.
back inside we saw some beautiful linens
more pretty stuff
is this christkindl ?
mango tarts.... these were awesome !!
more delicious things...
a few more poochy things....
then back outside where the mulled wine was awaiting..... of course, in canada we have to be gated in wherever there is alcohol involved. . you never know what people will do with a styrofoam cup these days !!
gluhwein - german mulled wine. here is a link to a post from hungarian girl about this. ( there are supposed to be 2 dots over the u but i dont know how to do that on my keyboard )
i would have preferred to linger quite a bit longer here in the mulled wine area ..... with mise if she were here....as it was quite a chilly night and the wine was so warm....
but we had a drive ahead of us. maybe next time.
all for now ~ pooch morning glory
