"Christmas Birds" - Francis Doughty, 2000

Yesterday morning, before going into my office in Oxford, I made a stop in Oxford's famous old Covered Market. I thought my blog readers might enjoy viewing some of the items available for sale in great abundance at Christmastime in England...some of which I had never seen on display before. Within the market, there are several butchers, fishmongers, bakeries, and fruit & vegetable sellers.

The more squeamish of you might want to avoid the following. Personally I love to walk through the market any time of year...but especially during what we Americans call "The Holidays".

Here's your tour...and, as usual, click on any of the images for a full-sized version.

















Merry Christmas Eve eve to all of you!

Made me a bit hungry just looking at all the "goodies". The carp was reasonably priced as well.

More great pix; I'd frame and hang in my kitchen!
