In the morning it's very pleasure to walk around it. At around 10 am the market filled up by the people. Try the infinite variety of fresh fruit juices. The more adventurous can try the oysters and other specialties.

Part of me does not want to write this review as the place is already extremely crowded. But Barcelona is not Barcelona without this market. Great food, fresh juices, local food and amazing bar on your left - try the Navajas - now a must for me every time I'm in town

We were in Barcelona only for 5 days, but we visited this market three times because it has everything I wanted. Freshly made fruit juice only sold for 1 Europe, and they are beautifully decorated. Must try their 4-5 EUR per cup ham. They also have a lot of seafood for sale for very reasonable price. This is my No.... More

we were in barcelona for the christmas holiday season and perhaps there were too much people. I mean you walk around the Rambla and you're constantly looking around for potential pickpockets because everyone warns us about them... then you wander into this place and you can't even enter there. I am not saying there isn't a huge variety of things... More

Don't leave Bareclona without at least taking a look into the giant covered Boqueria market. It's a delight for the all the senses, whether you are going to shop for a picnic, get a bite to eat, or just look around. You'll be amazed at the variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts, meats, and seafoods displayed in dazzling arrays of color.... More

Our two teenagers loved the market, where they found delicious, decadent ice cream (Speculoos cookies flavor, tiramisu, and dolce de leche were favorites). We also loved the fresh fruit juices kept on ice at stands throughout the market, and picked up some Spanish specialties, including peppercorns, Marcona almonds (not in oil), and wonderful, large dates. The market is a feast... More

The bouqeria is busy all day but it is imperative a stop to find probably the best and largest number of foods concentrated in one space. Fruit, fish, meats, cheese and anything your stomach can digest and all freshly displayed. Juices of any kind are cheap and delicious and a couple of stands with great produce to be savoured instantly.... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
