The Boqueria market is one of the the "must see's" in the city. The problem is that it is so packed with tourists that a lot of local shoppers do not go there anymore as they have to fight their way through hoards of people taking photos but not buying anything other than a tub of prepared fruit or a...

One of my FAVOURITE places in Barcelona. I love exploring new cities and countries the local way. This bazzar was as local as it gets. One of the oldest in Barcelona, its centrally located on La Ramblas street. Buzzing with activity, fresh fruits, veggies, meats, produce.. it comes to life early morning! The best part about it was the breakfast... More

This is an incredible food market, colours, smells, fresh produce - sensory overload. It does get really busy and I am glad to hear that there will be a limit / special times for large tourist groups because they make it very difficult for locals and other tourists to get around. A great place to get some fresh produce for... More

Barcelona is knows for its markets and we visited a few, but this was our ultimate favourite! Even if you don't want to buy anything, go just the experience of walking among the stalls, the smells, colours, noises... You can get there both fresh and ready made foods (snacks, tapas), so it's a great place for lunch and tasting the... More

It's just the most brilliant food market to wander around, buy and try stuff, and have a quick drink at one of the many little bars. Too full of tourists, of course, but as a tourist who am I to criticise? The more squeamish might be put off by the huge arrays of dead fish and meat, but it's a... More

If this is the same place it was amazing,putting places like Fairway and Whole Foods Stores to shame. Great for fish and meat and other foods as well as fine dinning with the locals.

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.
