The area
Address
Neighborhood: La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.

So many stores to choose from and very colourful inside. With sweets, fruits, meat, cheese and many more!! If you want to try something new, this is a must go place.

I do not feel like it is a top attraction of Barcelona because the city has so much more to offer. You can find a similar market in pretty much any city of the world. There is a great variety of meals and products but I think this is more interesting for locals with a kitchen to cook. Unless you're looking to buy food souvenirs for your friends back home. We just took a look and did not buy anything.

This was the highlight of our trip, what a wonderful place. Food and drink for all and thoroughly enjoyable. The juices are all incredibly and my boyfriend loved the cold meats. You have to go here if you visit Barcelona.

Beloved this market. You could easily find something to eat here, but just enjoy wandering through the market to see all the fresh fish, fruits and vegetables and meat cases. You will see things you wouldn't normally see offered in markets you shop. People watching is also great here.

You can see the wide array of wonderful Barcelona food at this food market, which includes many cafes where you can have tapas, snacks, drinks, etc. But be wary of pickpockets who may be nearby.

Utterly overpriced and the food is average. There are many restaurants that have better food and service. It's a tourist trap.

We ate some of the best seafood at Kiosk Universal! This market is big, beautiful, colorful and has lots of delicious treats. It’s very touristy but I am glad I saw it.

Your senses are overcome by colors, sights and smells in this amazing market! So many fun bright colors from an array of fresh squeezed juices, amazing olives and more. Olive oils, seasonings and a variety of seafood and the rmeats. You can eat at one of the restaurants inside offering fresh choices including sushi. This place is a must see for any trip to Barcelona
