Raval - Barcelona, Spain


If you love food markets, this is one not to be missed. It’s a viewing extravaganza of meat, fish, ham, cheese, and vegetables. Just wander around, work up an appetite, then get a stool at Bar Pinotxo and order some gambas and chick peas with blood sausage.


La Boqueria in Barcelona has great Iberian pork products along with great pintxo/tapas bars right there in the market.




Chef Gary Danko of Restaurant Gary Danko in San Francisco

Barcelona's Boqueria Market of the Ramblas. Eat at Pinotxo Bar (Pinocchio) or at El Quim de la Boqueria, eat the Pan con Tomate, razor clams, calamares. At the market I head for the Jamón Iberico and any other ham I want to try!

Wine Director Cat Silirie Barbara Lynch Gruppo in Boston

Everyone loves La Boqueria in Barcelona, Spain which I dream about going to. I love sitting in the stalls themselves in the bars in the back, which are wonderful.

Wine Importer Kevin McKenna of Louis / Dressner Selections

I still have lots of memories of smuggled truffles from the open markets.

Chef Jesus Nunez of Graffit

The Mercado de la Boqueria is magical. The colors, the environment, the variety of products make this market a really special place.


The lunch counters at Mercat De La Boqueria market in Barcelona are a case of food in context.
