BOQUERIA MARKET AND OTHER COOL MARKETS

The Boqueria Market is the oldes marketplace in Spain and one of the largest, too. Its amazing display of colorful exotic fruits next to local seasonal produce makes it really unique, and it’s also a fun option to eat tapas if you are happy to seat on a stool by a counter and interact with other customers and the waiters.

But the Boqueria Market isn’t the only market worth exploring in Barcelona! This Ultimate Guide to Barcelona Food Markets will take you around the Boqueria and the other top markets in town (food and non-food related), so you can take the most out of your visit.

Are you a real foodie? Do you have a particular type of food you NEED to try in every trip?

I have a sweet tooth, so in all my trips I do some research to find out where to find the best cakes, chocolates and legato, for instance. And it’s always nice too to find where are sold the unique local specialties of the area. Find below where we’ve covered some of them.

AWESOME PRIVATE CITY TOURS VISITING THE BOQUERIA MARKET

“La Boqueria has lost its soul”. Yeah… that’s what many guidebooks will tell you to sound well informed. Or what some tour companies tell you to get you to less exciting average local markets.

I don’t agree. While it’s true that the Boqueria market has seen a change in its offer that is now more dedicated to food to go than it ever was, the market soul is still there… hidden to be discovered! Our guides know the special stalls where locals continue to shop for special ingredients. And we’ll reveal them to you in our tours.

I hope this collection of Barcelona Markets posts will inspire you in your next trip to the city!
