EL MERCAT DE LA BOQUERIA

13 Nov

Any tourist in Barcelona with a camera and some time to spare knows that the Boqueria is the place to take fantastic pictures. The Boqueria has a special place in the hearts of the locals due to its central location and catalan charm. It is not uncommon to see the world’s best chef Ferran Adria handpicking his ingredients at the Boqueria since right around the corner from the market is his now legendary workshop/office.

 After work on Friday my friend Florie asked me to accompany her to the Market to pick up a few things for her family. Since I always carry my camera on me here are some pictures of the Marketplace around closing time.

 

BCNtip* Check out the market around closing time means fewer people and better prices especially toward the back of the market.

    At any time of day, check out the side aisles before buying anything in the center aisle. Although the stalls on the center are perhaps the most photogenic, the prices can be double those elsewhere.
