Panels of tiles at Farmers Market, Madeira Island







"The farmers’ market has two panels of tiles at the main entrance and several inside. They were made by the once-famous Fábrica de Sacavém.At the market, which is very near the old Santa Marianeighbourhood, the atmosphere is bustling as you would expect from any market. But this one is ablaze with colours and redolent with the intoxicating perfume of beautiful flowers. Birds of paradise, orchids, king proteas, roses, cattleyas and camellias are sold by the sprightly flower sellers wearing brightly coloured regional costumes.On the upper floor there are tropical fruits, vegetables and spices, while fish and meat are on sale on the lower floor"."[*]

Adoro azulejos e aprecio imenso os mais antigos. Todos pintados à mão ,por verdadeiros artistas que representaram toda uma época.
Estes painéis são, na verdade, magníficos.

Such beautiful tiles. They really are. I like going to a farmers market just to take in the sights, sounds and even smell. Great colors too. MB
