La Boqueria originated as a travelling market which used to frequent the city, it based itself in the Ramblas area of Barcelona. The open air market used to stand outside the old city walls and fruit and vegetable purveyors from the region would come to sell their produce. Even though the market has moved indoors, it still has the same feeling, you are able to sample the cured meats, cheeses and fruit juices before you buy. No foodie visiting Barcelona should miss a trip to La Boqueria.
