If you’re a food lover like me, this is definitely a must-visit. You don’t need to pay any money to get it, it can be considered something free to do as long as you don’t spend any money inside. It gives you a good idea of how much of a culinary icon Barcelona is. I personally think it’s a must-visit when in Barcelona for anybody who is a foodie. It’s honestly really fun to look at all of the stalls and see some funky or even unusual foods. In my city of Rotterdam, we have the Markthal, and the Mercat de la Boqueria is on a different scale in terms of variety of stalls and food.

We left to find our lunch and explore the amazing collection of delightful foods offered at La Boqueria Market. It was definitely sensory overload and with such an enormous selection, we had no idea where to begin in this unfortunately overcrowded food emporium. There was no seating to be had, which surprised me since it was technically not the Spanish lunch hour. Wish we'd had more time to explore what was offered.

Great place to visit and see the local vendors. Very busy and a good atmosphere of shoppers. Make sure to try one of the fresh fruit juices for 1 Euro - you won't be disappointed.

There are probably other less touristy food markets in Barcelona but this is the most famous one and it’s right in the middle of Las Ramblas so is very easy to get to. If you were coming here to buy your weekly groceries, then you might want to seek out a more local, cheaper market but otherwise this one, touristy or not, is a great experience full of colour, smells, noise and activity. We wandered through the seafood section, intrigued by the huge slabs of salted cod and some of the more curious looking things like goose barnacles, snails and razor clams. We stopped to look at the stalls with big flanks of jamon or ham, hanging up, hooves and all. We bought small paper cones with sticks of cheese and Iberico ham to eat on the spot and took away a mixed bag of empanada and croqueta for later. If you were doing a picnic at Ciutadella Parc, this would be a perfect place to come to gather things. Several mornings, we came to the market early and had breakfast at the bar at Pinotxos. Pinotxos is an institution at the market and was our favourite but it was often hard to get a seat because it’s very popular. The prawn omelette and cigali (chickpeas) were my favourites here. Before leaving the market, I would choose a freshly squeezed juice from one of the many stalls selling them. The going rate for a grab-and-go juice seemed to be €1.50 which was such good value.
