La Boqueria market – Barcelona, Spain
Now most people who visit Barcelona probably make their first stop Park Guell, or one of Gaudi’s other numerous creations in this great city. Me? My first stop was La Boqueria, a fabulous food market located right off of Las Ramblas.
La Boqueria, officially named Mercat Sant Josep, is a bustling market that has been in existence since the early 1800’s. This extremely colorful spot is filled with fruits, vegetables, assorted nuts, dairy products, meats, and seafood. There are also a few places within the market where you can grab a bite to eat.
I just loved this place. In fact, I re-visited it three times! It possesses such a great energy with all the locals and tourists meandering around it and making their orders. I also saw a lot of new fruits that I had never seen before. So I loved walking around and exploring this market. I definitely recommend stopping by here if you are ever in Barcelona.
