With a pumpkin for a drum and turnips for trumpets, a group of musicians set up a vegetable orchestra in the middle of Spain's capital Madrid.

Visiting members of the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra carved their instruments using goods from the San Miguel market.

They then put on a special performance to mark the market's 100th birthday.

"The vegetables have to be fresh," Ulrich Troyer, one of the musicians said.

"We basically work with all kinds of vegetables," he added.

After the concert, the vegetables were prepared for the Madrid audience to eat.

"Some groups do encores at the end," said Sandra Walkenhofer, the band's manager. "We do vegetables and soup."
