The Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, to give La Boqueria its proper name, is one of Barcelona’s busiest attractions. If you love food, you’ll see why – not only are the raw ingredients available, but there are also numerous stalls selling cooked (and pre-prepared) food. There are actually 11 bars in the market – along with dozens of others around the periphery.
The Boqueria is a working market, however, so please behave accordingly: ask before taking photos, and give people enough space to get their shopping done. And for goodness sake, don’t drag your suitcases around – yes, I have seen it. If you are buying supplies, La Boqueria is surprisingly good value. Just go early, before the crowds. Closed Sundays.
