Barcelona Carnival: Butcher in Disguise at La Merce Market

Butcher lady holding carving knife and wearing carnival costume

La Merce market in Nou Barris quarter (Pg Fabra i Puig 270-272) participated as usual in the Barcelona carnival activities. As it is traditional at this time of the year workers wore costumes while serving clients. In the picture this lady butcher with wig and red hat had no problem in skillfully slicing that chunk of meat. Maybe you came out with some artificial hair in your food but who cares, it is carnival time.


  1. Sounds like a fun time. Well, except for that part about hair in one's food!

  2. Carlos,

    For a minute there, I thought you were going to say that you were in that wig and hat.

    I wasn't aware of a carnival in that area.

    What a wonderful break to enjoy after the cold weather I hear you are experiencing there.

    Your blog looks GREAT!!!!

  3. Ola amigo Carlos. Have a look Aqui

  4. Yo me hubiese disfrazado de Jack el destripador si fuera carnicero

  5. Sencillamente genial!!
    un saludo :)
