La Boqueria Market used to be one of Barcelona’s main food markets where its´ neighbours would go to do their weekly family shopping for fresh, local products.
Those days are long gone! Today the market steeped into tradition until very recently, resembles more of a theme park attracting hoards of tourists every day. Take away stalls wherever you look; almost outnumbering the family-run stalls
simply selling seasonal local produce from Anchovies to Zucchini.
Come and visit! Have a fruit salad to go – in a plastic bowl; a freshly squeezed fruit juice – in a plastic bowl; a freshly squeezed fruit juice – in a plastic cup; a sample of local cured meats and cheeses – on a plastic plate.
