La Boqueria Market in Barcelona – a heavenly morning spent browsing and tasting. Markets are a passion of ours. There is something about a fresh produce market, the smells, the hustle and bustle, the conversations between the locals and the great photo opportunities that are to be had.
All About La Boqueria
One of the main attractions of Barcelona is La Boqueria Market situated just off La Rambla. The market has been in existence since 1840. This was on our bucket list and we were not disappointed.
With vendors selling fresh seafood, fruit, vegetables, meat, breads, cheese, olives, nuts and grains and even sweets the market is a meeting place for locals and a must for tourists.
The sweet smell of fresh strawberries, with the mustiness of the cheeses mingle with the fish and meat smells sending your senses in overdrive.
Enjoy a fresh juice as you wander through the stalls before heading for a glass of wine and some tapas.
It’s exhausting wandering through the market. Now where was that tapas bar that sold chilled glasses of white wine?
The market is open from Monday to Saturday from 8am to 8.30pm.
Address: Rambla 91
