butcher along the camino frances


New Member
I'm planning my journey to begin in Sept-Oct. 2010. I am walking with my service dog. While finding food for myself is fairly easy, finding it for my dog may be different. My dog eats a raw diet so as long as I can find a butcher shops or meat markets along the way, things will be fine.

So for those who have traveled the camino, are there butcher's in some of the smaller towns along the way. I am bringing my tent's rainfly and footprint to camp in along the trail.

Thank you to all.

Ah yes - and the fish van!

I remember a couple of days when the same van passed me at almost hourly intervals. Great when it was the bread van, not so good when it was selling industrial size gas tanks,
