Lovely to look at all the fresh produce although it is quite touristy here. Definately worth a stroll through if you are on the ramblas - which of course you will be at some point!

The market seems to be mostly a touristic market, with many stands of juices, small restaurants, and food stands.
However, it's a colorful and cheerful market, and it worths spending half an hour walking around there.

Go hungry to the Mercat de la Boqueria...wonderful veggies, seafood, fruit cups, and restaurants. Go early in morning for the least crowds...by 12 noon, it is crowded and noisy.

With our hotel just a 5 minute walk from the market, we visited a couple of times. The best time for us was the morning to get breakfast - fresh breads, baked goods, fruit and smoothies. In the morning it was usually quieter and would have less tourists so it was ideal!
The offerings in the market are vast and the concepts they offer are fresh and interesting. The food/drink we had was very tasty and real indulgent.
As it's a market under shelter, it can be quite cool, specifically when out of the sun so a jacket/cardigan is probably recommended.
