Barcelona, a photo a day

Market day

Market day at the Boqueria. La Boqueria, or Mercat Sant Josep de la Boqueria, is a huge market near the top of the Ramblas. For those of you who have been to Barcelona, I am sure you went in there.
You get everything in here! The best looking vegetables, fruit, juices, fish, tapas, greek finger food… The place is surrounded by some restaurants serving what they call market food in the guides. A few great seafood restaurants.
It is a fantastic place to look at the world, the people. A photographer’s place.

  3. I know that market! Such a great place to hang out. I recall the lady fish venders. When I was young they were really impressive.

  17. Your image and your words say it all. I remember the market, but then I took only photos in B&W, so half of the joy was lost and even the stalls weren't so gorgeous as now.
    Nice post and beautiful photo.
