Situated in the Mercado de Boqueria in Barcelona you'll find this stall in the back last row middle of the market, Fruteria Vidal Pons. Super friendly staff that pass out samples. The smells of chocolates and sweets was undeniable and was heaven. My go to here are the differing percentage cocoa flavored chocolates. Each had a distinct flavor and bitterness of chocolate that i love. This isn't your usual raisin covered chocolate but is the cocoa pod paste mashed up and surrounding the nuts itself. Any of the macadamia or almond covered chocolates were so good. You can't go wrong. I really wish i could come here every day but alas till next time Barcelona.

Great market with some amazing fresh fruits, cured meats, fresh seafood, and these amazing $1 fresh juices. There are also a couple of tapas joints inside as well. Perfect for a walk around if you are a little hungry, there is plenty to snack on here. Some items aren't practical from a tourist perspective, like buying a fresh squid. This is a stop I would definitely recommend in your travel in Barcelona. It does get tight around here so I would keep your belongings close.

The most famous of all the markets in Barcelona is La Boqueira, just off the main street of La Rambla. Over the years, it has become more of an attraction for tourists and the actual commerce of the city has increasingly moved away. But in the early mornings, before the crowds descend, the chefs and restauranteurs of Barcelona still come to La Boqueira for much of their produce. There are hundreds of stalls here, selling fish, meat, cheese, fruit vegetables and more. But as well as the ordinary, you can find the extraordinary here - the shop selling snails, or one with the vibrant colours of exotic lollies.

Came on a Saturday morning for breakfast / brunch. There's such a great variety of foods to try - everything from traditional Spanish food to bars and bars of fresh seafood. It gets crowded quite easily, so go before 11am to avoid the crowds!

Never ever go to the Fruit shop 1897, which is the first fruit shop after entering the main entrance of the market. The first time(and it is my last time) I bought leeches from them. They are all rotted inside, bad taste, I cannot eat even one of them. If took a close look you would find it disgusting. But when I was in market, it was too crowded to check, and shop assistant just get leeches quickly into the bag(they knew leeches are rotted!) It costs me 14 euros for 500 grams disgusting decayed leeches! This is unforgivable!

One of my favourite places in Barcelona with all its amazing sights, smells, sounds and tastes. It is a great experience but be aware that prices can go up considerably for tourists. The sweet stalls near the front tried to take the proverbial on last visit!

A wonderful tourist trap just off La Rambla. The food isn't overpriced and the quality of the produce and food is great. Fruit juices are cheap at only 1 euro each. Sample some tapas while you walk around. You can buy vegetables, fruits, meat, fish and cheeses in the markets. It's quite a busy market, so remember to be wary of pickpockets. Also, don't buy straight away, roam around and see what's on offer before you buy - as it could be cheaper deeper within the labyrinth of stalls.

This place is packed with tourists as expected. It's still a very cool market with lots of tasty treats. Just walk around and sit down to eat whatever strikes your fancy.
