Markets of Barcelona

Mercat de la Boqueria

Mercat de la Boqueria is one of the oldest markets in Barcelona, located right off La Rambla close to metro Liceu in Ciutat Vella in Barcelona. Its history is long: the first mentions of La Boqueria date back to the 13th century; in the Middle Ages the spot was occupied by a pig market, and only at the end of the 19th century the decision was made to officially recognize La Boqueria as the public market in Barcelona.

One can buy anything and everything at La Boqueria, including fruits and vegetables, fish and seafood, meats and poultry, nuts, mushrooms, spices and sweets. Most products sold at the market are locally grown and produced and sold by the farmers, fisherman and butchers themselves. Local cooks like to say that if you come to La Boqueria and cannot find what you are looking for, you are not allowed to change your recipe, but to keep looking, as Mercat de la Boqueria has everything.

The market is open Monday to Saturday from 8 am to 8:30 pm. Locals do not recommend visiting on Monday as many stalls, especially in the fish section, are closed.
