La Boqueria is one of Barcelona’s many fresh produce markets. Barcelona appears to have a deep rooted market culture, a culture we are slowly losing in London. You can find pretty much everything you’d need for your kitchen at La Boqueria, from vegetables to locally sourced fresh fish, dried fruits, nuts, oil and yeah, pretty much everything you’d ever need. As a vegan and supporter of fresh produce, this market was like a giant toy shop for me.
I recon these tomatoes would be perfect with a bit of salt and olive oil…
Fresh fish, some of these babies were still moving and one of the crabs tried to escape 😦
Orangettes are my absolute favorite, and I’m sure these are soooooo much better than Leonidas ones… I didn’t, I resisted!
Okay you get the idea, you can eat like a king in Barcelona in the comfort of your own kitchen. One last thing, after looking at all of this fresh produce, don’t miss out on lunch at Bar Pinotxo. The bar is conveniently located at the entrance of the market and here you can eat comfortably for less. Don’t eat at a tourist trap ‘tapas’ restaurant on La Rambla, eat here!
