One of Europe’s biggest food markets located near Barcelona’s Ramblas, is somewhere you have to check out if you are visiting the city. Originally built as a meat market, the Boqueria market has diversified immensely since then. The charming chaos of the vendors and customers, fresh fruit, colours and smells all contribute to this lively shopping experience in the heart of the city. You can pick up a light lunch from one of the cafes and bars around the market to sit and enjoy some authentic Spanish cuisine. The vendors here offer the best of the best, and anything you pick up will surely be a Mediterranean specialty. You’ll come home wanting to bring all these Spanish influenced ingredients back with you.
