Create an itinerary including La Boqueria
Take in the local culture by meandering through the throngs of people going about their daily business at La Boqueria, arguably the country’s best-known market. Noted for selling a wide range of local products, including fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit, the market has been open since 1836. It’s worth a visit just for the colors, smells, and sights of the fresh foodstuffs displayed and sold here. Friendly vendors can tell you exactly where and how their goods were grown, raised, or harvested. Avoid driving and arrive as early as possible to miss the crowds. If you can allow time, take a seat at one of the cafes and spend a few moments observing other travelers as they search for a little bit of something Spanish to take home with them. Make La Boqueria part of your personalized Barcelona itinerary using our Barcelona trip maker app.

  • Love this market, it's super busy as you'd expect, with not too much space to eat what you buy, but the quality is great in general everywhere here. You'll get food from everywhere and usually there's a fish market in the centre too (it wasn't open on the Monday when we went, but that just left us a little more space). You can buy dishes to eat there, or items to take home. Slightly more expensive of course, and very touristy, but a very large, high market area - excellent to wander around in, grab some delicacies and a beer or 2.
  • The market was a fun experience. I recommend walking the entire market before choosing who to buy from because a lot of the vendors offer the same things for slightly different prices. But you can choose your own adventure. You can grab a snack or eat a whole meal. There aren't many seats in the market itself, but there is a small plaza behind it with some benches where you can take your goodies.
