Always a great experience. Love just walking in and seeing the stalls. Visually stunning and so much on offer. Only thing i don't like is the silly prices of the bars and cafe. But regardless, it all looks amazing and the skills of some of the butchers and mongers are second to none.

Boqueria market has the best rated tapas bar in Barcelona - the El Pinotxo. We did our research and this bar was rated as the best tapas bar in Barcelona. We didn't quite believe it but we changed our mind after eating there. Fabulous hot tapas and easily the best we had in Barcelona. Must-try dishes include grilled squid and... More

Displays are really nice and even if you don't buy anything, it is nice to walk around. Good place to buy spices, especially cheap saffron!

This truly is a place to see, the amount of fresh produce in here is mind boggling. From meat to fish to veg to anything else you might think of. The colours sights, sounds and smells are amazing in here, you can even have breakfast or lunch at some of the stands.

we stayed in a hotel across the street from the market,what an experience from fresh fruits,juice,spices,dried fruits and nuts,meats,sandwiches and seafood. This market has it all, great place for breakfast or lunch or just walk and sip on fresh fruit juice and sample the taste of catalunya as the local call it . A must see when on the ramblas.

The Boqueria is just full of choices for food all beautifully displayed. Every kind of fresh juice you can and can't imagine is available for 2euros during the day and 1 euro near closing. The crowd there is great so you need to watch your purse for pickpockets.

A mix of tourists and locals. The vendors are mostly fruit and juice stands, small butcher shops, seafood purveyors and a wide variety of small restaurants. a huge market with a friendly Catalonian atmosphere. Not to be missed.
