One of my fond delicious memories in Barcelona Spain happened inside the La Boqueria Market. I did my researched and watch video before going to this place, I have to say there is nothing like experiencing it in person. We have a similar place in Vancouver called ‘Granville Market‘ and I thought that was huge until I saw the La Boqueria. If there was one regret I have is that I did not have much time to go back again and again in this place, but my short visit was sweet and fun. This place have it all. From fresh ready to eat and drink produce and juices, savory dishes, small bites of tapas, array of chocolates and nuts. If you have time, they also have places where you can have a sit down meal, seafood and all. Depending on your budget, you can have bite size snacks, something to go or a full meal of expensive sea food dishes.
