The Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, often simply referred to as La Boqueria, is a large public market in the Ciudad Vieja district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, and one of the city's foremost tourist landmarks, with an entrance from La Rambla, not far from the Liceo, Barcelona's opera house. With 2583 m² and more than 300 stalls, it is the second largest market in the city.
Upon first glance, it may seem like La Boqueria is nothing more than a string of stalls catering to visitors, but look a little bit closer, and you’ll find that there are two sides to the market.
In the front part of La Boqueria, around the main entrance, vendors mostly serve tourists with stalls offering freshly cut fruit and grab-and-go smoothies dominating the options.
You will find all kinds of stalls: poultry and eggs, pork and charcuterie, butchers, specialties, fruit and vegetables, nuts, legumes, offal, olives and preserves, fish and shellfish, saltwater fishing and grocery stores.
Do not miss the central part, where the fishmongers are located, it is very colorful, although in color those who win are the greengrocers that organize the product in a way that you want to try everything.
