The area
Address
Neighbourhood: La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.

A must see place should you ever visit Barcelona. You will find this on the La Rambla down towards the port/sea. Such colourful displays of fresh produce are to be found here. The smells [good & bad] surround you as you stroll around this purpose built indoor market.

Allow plenty of time to be amazed at all the fresh fruit and colourful displays of sweets, fish, meat, nuts and dried and fresh meats. Some sights perhaps not for the Vegan/Vegetarian - you have been warned!

Always a busy place so keep an eye on your kids & wallet.

Really not a place to mention something positive about

Such an amazingly colourful and huge food market. We simply wandered around, looking at displays of food items.
If you buy something, keep the receipt so you can use the toilet for free.

Would highly recommend a trip to the food market. We went twice during our trip. I didnt rate the spiral chips, it was quite dry and not very tasty. My husband had a Burito that was crispy on the outside,it was so good he went back on the last day and had two more. I had a pancake on the last day with white chocolate and Nutella which was delicious. So many choices and reasonable prices considering the location. Definitely worth a look

Tucked in off the Rambla across from the Barri Gothic section this food market is a bit polished and touristy but still full of the foods the locals would use in addition to the take away fruits and meals designed to eat on the run - no tables. It is clean, easy to navigate and full of color, variety and helpful vendors.

Good for cheap eats and a quick bite for lunch. Lots of counters serving various meats, wraps, hot sandwiches and juices. All reasonable in price...only down side was lack of seating options and slightly crowded.

The food was good. The burger was great and my sister ate an amazing hummus. The service was also good, they were nice and active. It was fun to be able to which the chefs make the food.

Vibrant…yes, nice cheese and cold meat selections….yes. Fresh juice….yes. Either eat on the go or sit on the floor. Had an expectation of more available seating that you can actually enjoy some of the produce on site…beware of the opportunistic tradesmen, beggars and gypsy’s that will confront you if you stand still for longer than a minute. Originally wanted to spend a few hours at the market….but 1 hour was enough for us. Centrally located on La Ramblas Ave, easy to find.
