Do you know how you know when you found ‘the one’? When after you get drunk the night before and waste half a day of your only day in Barcelona because of your hungover. Your boyfriend (who already took care of you throughout the night) makes sure you go to the Boqueria Market, because he know how obsessed you are with them.
The Mercat de Boqueria is one of the best markets in Spain (according to them…of whole Europe) and even though there has been records of it from 1217, it’s actual structure dates from 1853. One thing you must know about it, is that it is huge and you can find whatever you think. From fruit and produce, to fresh fish, to crates and crates of spices, to… le boyfriends favourite… crates and crates of lollies, to my favourite…. tons of spanish ham.
