For any food lover, La Boqueria is a standard. It's one of the world's most known food markets and is definitely impressive. It overflows with fresh produce, meats, fishes, and foods to eat on the spot. All the products are high quality and worthy of this world class market.
Go early, you'll walk among locals and those in the food industry. Go later in the morning and early afternoon, you'll walk among hoards of tourists. My advice is to go early and plan on eating your way around the market as you feast your eyes on all the goods.
|Bombarded with fresh produce, local goods, and colors|
|Fresh fruits artfully displayed|
|Pimientos de padrones. Typically cooked a la plancha in tapas bars. One of my favorites|
|Wooden crates of mushrooms. Look at that variety and those colors|
|Nuts, raw and roasted. Fruits, candied and dried|
|Turrones. Spanish nougat made from local almonds|
|Foie gras. This picture for you, California|
|Burritos. Definitely not the burritos we know|
|Small empanadas, tarts, etc. Basically, fried goodness|
|Also found on sticks|
|More food on sticks. Jamón, chorizo, and bread. Perfect for eating while strolling around the market|
|More jamón and chorizos to nibble on in the market|
|Couldn’t just look at these jamón cones. They are as good as it looks|
|So much eating in the market, so of course there’s also drinking. You can drink here or take the glass around and drink it in the market. Just don’t forget to bring the glass back|
