La Boqueria is a large public market in the heart of Barcelona. It reminded me of the Wangfujing market in Beijing, if it was crossed with Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market – touristy, crammed, noisy, and smelly, in the best ways. Everyone speaks English. A must for any visit to Barcelona. Skip lunch in favor of sampling items from a lot of booths. Prices are pretty consistent throughout. We left very happy.
