“Colorful and very vibrant atmosphere!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

I loved this market! We came here 2 mornings in a row for breakfast. If you get here early, there are much fewer people and tourists than later in the day as well. There are fruits, pastries, seafood, and the list goes on. This is a very fun and colorful market that is absolutely amazing. You’ll love walking around, enjoying the smells, admiring the food, and taking pictures of all the color around you. Oh also, some of the food/drinks in the back are a little cheaper than those in the front! I highly recommend making a stop here if possible (preferably in the morning).

“Vibrant, tasty and interesting place”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

I'm so used to the overpriced Borough Market in London that this place was a breath of fresh air.

We ate our way around the different stalls, trying juices, fruit, ice cream, catalan sausage, deep fried cheese to name a few...and most items won't set you back more than a few euros. Pick up lunch here then head back for mid-afternoon snacks, and breakfast!

Such vibrant colours and sounds you'll leave buzzing. Enjoy!

“It’s very colourful, you cannot miss it”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This place is always crowded by both local residents and tourist. Everything displaced beautifully and very commercialised place. It was amazed that so many variety of grocery was available. There are few bars on the Market. You can eat flesh seafood.
Toilet facility is available for 0.50 euro coin.

“La Boqueria market”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

I like this place. It is so lively. Went there almost every day. The place is busy. Many interesting food. Wow the ham is fantastic. You can get many sorts of local food there. The price is reasonable. It is along La Rambla. A busy pedestrian street. So lively in the summer and full of people even at 10pm. Like this place very much.

“Foodies Paradise”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Easy to find being close to La Rambla means there is no good reason not to visit this amazing food market. It's a foodies delight and strolling through the undercover market is mind boggling. We snacked on luscious peaches, fresh juices and just looking at the range of food from nuts, meats fruits, herbs and spices, chocolates, fish, cheeses.....and the list goes on!

Not to be missed!
