“No reason to go to La Boqueria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

We found what appeared to be the same quality and atmosphere as LA boqueria at half the prices. Fantastic find and convenient to many tourist destinations.

“Enhance you metabolism”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Let's change the order. Once you enter the market you tale some blueberries, raspberries , blackberries, strawberries and cherries to revive your mind and heart and then you continue shopping. Be certain that you are choosing from the exotics offered cause they are too much and you will be hesitating. Don't leave without reviving your body with a meal, don't worry you will not gain weight you will gain muscles that will enhance your metabolism. Another idea for enhancing your metabolism that you did not think about. See!

“Great market and not as busy as La Ramblas market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Great selection of produce to either walk through and just look, or purchase for consumption. Great selection of meat, cheese, spices, seafood, and the egg lady - quite a sight.

A couple of restaurant options inside so when you get hungry from looking at all that food, you can sit and enjoy some of it as well.

“Lovely market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Full of produce, not as busy as other markets so more time and space to browse. Buskers outside provided entertainment when we were there as well.
