This is the second time we visited the market and actually ate there for the first time. For a first timer, the market is colorful; full of people and action (mostly tourist). But I find the tapas (two stores in the back) were so and so and more expensive compared to say Cervecería Catalana (the wait is almost the same).... More

I thought the suk in Jerusalem was an adventure, but the Boqueria off La Rambla is just as much. We first went on a Mon when several stands are closed, but went back when it was in full swing. Not to be missed!

This is what Les Halles De Lyon Paul Bocuse wishes it was... Actually this is what I wished it was. Unpretentious, great variety of fruits, vegs, meats, food. You will find everything from lychees to animal innards for sale. This is a def must for foodies.

This is a delight for the senses! A visual feast where you want to take home every thing in the market. The sounds of the market, the vendors, the buyers, the visiting...fabulous!

Busy market with lots to eat and was amazing to see, worth a couple of photos! There were several stores selling fresh fruit juices/smoothies for one or two euro, fruit salads, jamon, baked goods, veges and meat. Great place for a snack or meal although not much seating.

How markets should be, everyone should visit at least once to marvel at the produce on show, the colours and vibrancy here are amazing and expect to take pictures of paprika and pose in front of peppers. Beware though, prices here are double most markets so serious shoppers should try the supermercado first!

Fresh fruit. Cheese. Eggs. Bakery. Fish. Ham. Candy. Seafood. So many colours and smells. All the craziness and noise of all the great markets. Don't miss the belly of this beautiful city. And while you're there - stop by Bar Clemen's at the back on the left - for breakfast, or a drink and snack. A real treat.

One of the highlights of our trip was walking through La Boqueria (we went through it multiple times), getting jugos and paletas. Has such an authentic feel, even filled with tourists.
