Portuguese Typical Products in Sta. Iria Fair

Hello everyone,
As promised, today I´m posting the pictures of Portuguese typical products and specialties found in Sta. Iria Fair. In this annual fair, there´s a pavilion dedicated to Gastronomy where we can have a meal or buy products from different Portuguese regions. That´s where I took most of the pictures below. I will use legends in Portuguese (and whenever possible a description in English) so you know how these products are called in our language:
