One of the gastronomic traditions in Spain is to do your shopping at least every week. This ensures people can cook with the very best products found in the markets like fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables, high quality meats, and freshly caught fish. Using fresh and seasonal ingredients gives Spanish cuisine its unique touch.
