Top ways to experience Mercat de la Boqueria
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.

Numerous food options
Oct 2021 • Couples
That place offers numerous food options, from vegan, vegetarian, fish and meat options.
A lot of spices are also available.
Everything can be eaten there or taken home.
You are also able to buy rare things to cook at home.

We enjoyed local "fish and chips"
Jun 2021
Being there previously and it was always overcrowded, really too much.
June 2021, when some travel restriction were still on ... it was still full of people.
If you feel safe...let'x eat here as it's so good.
Fried seafood cone, takoyaki octopus, fruit smoothies on the go as no seats available but if you find seating more gourmet options are available - and surely you can easily find lot of jamon Serrano bites.
Not to be missed if not scared by crowd.

Great indoor market
Aug 2021 • Couples
One can easily spend hours in that indoor market, great choice of spices, fruit, vegetables and possibility of eating and drinking on the spot thanks to food stands that offer visitors different Spanish specialties for reasonable prices. There are many sweets for children as well, a great experience if you come to Barcelona

Famous central market
Jul 2021 • Family
This is a famous market near to Las Ramblas and Plaça de Catalunya. It is beautiful and clean, with well-presented stalls and fresh produce... wonderful on the eye!

It is expensive (very touristy) and crowded. We had lunch at El Quim de la Boqueria.. the seafood was amazing (even if a tapas restaurant in a market!) and recommended (if you can get a table).

True local market must go and buy
Jul 2020 • Friends
Went there a year ago and it was an amazing and unexpected gem of the city. Of course there are expensive products, as in many markets of such kind all over Europe, but if you search a bit more you can find the same items in better prices, especially in the little hidden markets within the Market. The atmosphere was exactly what I expected, a blend of a local market surrounded by their everyday routine and tourists looking for new experiences and tastes. I am looking forward to going again this summer. I hope Covid 19 hasn't taken this magic feeling away.

Must visit
Apr 2021
This is a place to be and a place to must visit. Born downtown Athens, Greece, there are a lot of similarities even with COVID menace around us the place can cheer us up. Everything that could think of is there. More time and you could blend with locals.
