No visit to Barcelona is complete without a visit to La Boqueria, just off La Ramblas. This market is a sensory feast with all the best that Spain has to offer. The freshly squeezed juices, so many varieties, are an absolute bargain at €1 each as are the fresh fruit salads. That was our breakfasts sorted. I could while away... More

Alright, I have small thumbs, but the fruit and veg on display all seems to be on steroids. In this market you ought to be able to find anything you need to cook up a feast -- every type of fruit, veg, meat (every part of the animal!), spices, oils, nuts etc. Or if you prefer there are plenty of...

Packed produce market off La Rambla. There is a little vegetarian stall at the back right I was interested in trying but it seemed to be shut every time I went (at awkward times). Fruit, veggies, meat and fish. Everywhere.

Very, very beautiful displays on this vibrant market, with lots of vegetables and seafood. Very nice small eating-places too. Come early, for it is getting very crowded here after 11 o'clock.

This was one of my favorite experiences from my Barcelona trip. A sensory overload in the best way possible - a huge market with meats, fish, fruit, nuts, candy, and juices. I could have eaten lunch here!

From a visual standpoint Boqueria is soo pleasing to the senses. The colors of the fruit, the different colors of the flowers, the fresh juices, cheeses and olive oil everywhere are sure to impress. There is nothing you wouldn't find at this market for making a good meal. Taste a little bit of Barcelona and what that great city has... More

Love this place. For either buying food., people watching or a snack. Wonderfully displayed vegetable fruit fish and meat. If you are a veggie best avert your eyes at the meat stalls. Fruit drinks at € 1 or up to € 1.5 great. I had razor clams and small scallops at. € 15 each a dish not a cheap breakfast... More

We loved the fresh food - fruit, meat, seafood, drinks - and the authentic bartering with the merchants. Did NOT like the beggars and the panhandlers.
