LA BOQUERIA MARKET // BARCELONA, SPAIN

La Boqueria

I am obsessed with markets. No matter where I am in the world - if I find my way to a market - I feel as though I have had the local's experience. Of all the markets I have been lucky to visit, La Boqueria in Barcelona is my favorite. Located in the heart of La Ramblas - a visit to Barcelona is so much better if you have this on your itinerary. The La Ramblas neighboorhood is quite a tourist spot so the market does get busy at time but dont let that discourage you - it will be a disservice to skip a visit to La Boqueria if you are in Barcelona. It has got everything from an oyster bar ; fresh juices to empanadas (the best empanadas, ever). There are also restaurant ; vegetable and fruit stalls and spices and nuts on sale with locals and tourist shopping alongside.  I explored every nook of the market stopping by just about every food stall for a nibble from the taste platter; had two fruit drinks and ate the most delicious empanadas. I picked up some spices and sweets for friends back home and settled on a stool at the bar of one of the restaurant to people watching.  I could have sat there all day, but with only 48 hours in Barcelona - I had to force myself to go explore other parts of the city. If you find yourself in La Ramblas - stop by and also check out my guide to La Ramblas for other things to do in this part of Barcelona.
