This was my favorite part of the trip. I'm going back to Barcelona just to experience La Boqueria Market again. ENTER NOW YOU WILL SEE WHY :)
I would call these the gates of heaven, but really it's only the entrance to the world famous market.
We decided to skip breakfast and save up for lunch for our market crawl. Everything I stuck in my mouth was AMAZING. I'm not exaggerating, it was the coolest place I've ever been.
They had EVERYTHING under the sun in this market! Each vendor specialized in a certain food. This one below was all smoothies packed on ice. I tried french melon and kiwi and Jim chose banana guava.
Any spice you would ever want...
The seafood was so fresh the lobsters, shrimp, and crabs were still moving around on the ice. You could try anything. I had so much fresh seafood I couldn't breath afterwards. They all had little pots in the back and would boil, fry, or pan sear and fresh catch you would like.
BEANS...some beans I didn't even know existed.
GUMMY BEARS, WORMS, ETC...
Fresh fruit and VEGI's
The Spaniards know how to use their ham
Fresh fried octopus :)
Of course I found me an Italian man that speicalized in pizza. It as GREAT and he had Spanish Rose' Cava for $2 EURO a glass!
Here I am focusing on my food :) I was so happy...
They had an asian side also...
Chicken and Intestine..don't judge until you try it
The egg girl...fresh eggs from the farm hand picked that morning
More seafood...Barcelona by far has the best seafood I've ever had.
Jim's favorite, chocolate and sweet treats
This man below specialized in all different types of onions
AND the olives are wonderful!
I took over 1000 pictures and I had so many of the market..but I would be here all day loading pictures up. I also have a couple of video's from this market I want to post. Hope you aren't to hungry after these pics :) I haven't even blogged about the TAPAS yet!
