La Boqueria: The Most Magical Market Ever

Behold.

The most magical, amazing, breathtaking, badass market EVER: La Boqueria in Barcelona.

It’s so huge, that they provide you with a MAP to navigate your way around. And trust me, you’ll use it.

So, do you like fruit?

Well there’s PLENTY of that for you. Strawberries, bananas, pineapple, mango, pear, and more exotic fruits. MAGIC! Magic, I tell you!

So do you like vegetables?!

After almost 2 months of pizza, pasta, cheese, baguettes…basically a carb fest, all I wanted to do was take all of the vegetables and make the biggest salad ever. There’s something about vegetables that makes my heart go crazy. I couldn’t take it!

But oh no, there’s not only fruits and vegetables in this magical market. Ohhh no.

There’s seafood.

Fancy some pork?


I couldn’t resist these adorable piggies!

Or maybe some fresh squeezed fruit juice?


Johnny and I had some juice, and it was delicious. It was definitely 100% fresh squeezed and freshly made. No tropicana in here!

Or maybe you just want some gelato. Well, La Boqueira has got you covered.


DO YOU SEE THE KINDER FLAVORED GELATO?! Pretty sure I fainted.

Kid at heart? How about some candy?


Cheese!!!!


Peppers!


Spices!


And it goes on. And on. And on.


There are tapas bars, regular bars, an organic/vegetarian restaurant, chocolates…EVERYTHING. Seriously, anything you could ever want (as far as food goes), is in La Boqueria. Johnny and I stayed at La Boqueria almost 2 hours. It’s that amazing. Every corner was a new discovery, some new type of vegetable or fruit. It’s truly breathtaking. Everyone knows that Spain is foodie heaven, and La Boqueria is basically food porn at it’s finest. La Boqueria is located off of La Rambla, so it’s really easy to find. It’s definitely a MUST if you are in Barcelona, you will not be disappointed.
