Yes, lots of people. Yes, lots to view and take photos of. Make sure you stop and try a few things. We had lunch. We bought some wines. We bought a small serving of spanish ham slices. We look forward to a return visit now that we have been there once, we'll enjoy it even more.

But go early in the morning, it's less crowded. We had breakfast there two days in the row, at a small family bar on the edge of the market. Wanted to go even the third day but on Sunday it's closed. You find everything you can dream of. The fresh juices are good but my favorite was the frozen juice... More

Finding a space at any of the small bars in the market is almost impossible, but finding the ingredients for a great picnic is easy and the results are delicious: dates filled with nuts or bacon; various stuffed olives, empanadas, fruits, ...

A lovely market and the fruit stands at the front are great. 1€ for a glass of juice and about the same 1-3€ for a small pot of fruit. Lots of tapas places inside the market and tasty-looking takeaways. We had a tortilla wrapped 'come' of 3 fish fingers and rubbery squid rings for 4.50€ which wasn't great but the... More

Very rich market offering good people watching and amazing looking food. It is crowded but if you don't mind La Ramblas walking then this is a great place to just walk through. We bought some natural juices they had in the entrance and they were great. We were there later (after 3) so not many places were open - but... More

This market is a can't miss and most certainly a top 5 attraction in Barca. You can find most any fruit, vegetable, or spice from around the world. The meat and fish selection is astounding. This is a great place to sample jamon, and there are a number of food stalls serving fantastic food. If you love food, brave La... More

One of my first stops was La Boqueria, the most amazing market ever. Fresh Fish, Meats vegetables, fruits Juices. It's probably the most beautiful complete market in the world. The prices aren't inexpensive, but you get the quality that is hard to find in most places. We ate at a little restaurant counter inside, their food was good but not... More
