La Boquería Market // Barcelona, Spain
Welcome to La Boquería market. Photos do not do it justice. So many people. So much fresh produce. Smoked hams dangling from the ceiling.
Fresh eggs. Chickens, ducks, small, large, brown, white, speckled, you name it!
Had to have a photo of the Mexican booth. They sold Valentina hot sauce :)
So much fruit!
Biggest ChupaChupa of my life.
We went juice-crazy. SO MANY FLAVORS! I tried the Kiwi-Coconut the first day. Oh yeah, and only 1 euro.
Lots of freeeesh fish.
Flowers along La Rambla.
This is another market in Barcelona. Santa Caterina. Not as impressive as La Boquería but looked like an easier place to actually grocery shop- not as many people and not as much sensory overload :) Although you actually miss the full effect being there in person the view from above is great, the architectural design is really neat.
I went to La Boquería 3 times, haha. It is so much fun just to walk, look, snap photos and take it all in. I think it’s best to go a little before noon when everything is in full swing and all the vendors are set up. They open at 8 and close at 8, but if you go really early not everything is set up. They have a few little tapas bars and cafes inside, but it’s so loud and busy I didn’t want to eat there. Plus the fish, no matter how fresh, still smells like fish. Very much so. =P
