Traditionally market day was once a week, and it must have been the social highlight of the week, too.
Conversely, the day before market day must have been pretty rough. You’ve just gone a week without shopping for fresh food, there’s little in the way of food preservation beyond the salted pork and the cool room, and southern Spain can get very hot….
Maybe the joy of market day was sometimes dampened by the affect of food poisoning from the night before?
