Boqueria Market with Marta

“I’m Marta, official guide of Barcelona.

We are at the ‘Boqueria Market’, the most ancient market of Barcelona, not to mention Spain’s biggest market. This is the beating soul of the city.

One of the most surprising areas of the market is the fish stands: small and big fish, of all colours, varieties of prawns and scampi, little cuttle fish and octopuses that, once grilled, are served with garlic, parsley and lemon juice.

Tunas, hakes, crabs…

Some stands are dedicated exclusively to olives. There are so many different types of olives that even those who are not very fond of them will find something delicious to eat.

One of the stands, specialized in fruit and mixed berries, also sells edible flowers for salads, soups, and desserts. It’s the new trend of the Spanish ‘haute cuisine’. I absolutely love fried zucchini flowers with mozzarella!

Then we see a stand with snails, typical dish of the Catalan cuisine. There’s also a festival dedicated to snails, held each year in the city of Lleida!

And then more stands with eggs: ostrich, quail, and goose and duck, those with two yolks on the inside.

The fruit you see comes from all over the world.

They sell everything here, even the head of the beef, which is a typical Catalan dish“.
