Barcelona Market

Barcelona's La Rambla area is home to the Mercat de la Boqueria wet market. Apparently, there has always been a market on this spot since 1217. The origin of the word ‘Boqueria’ seems to refer to meat market. Over the centuries, it got several names, but the roof structure that stands today, has been in place since 1914. Also available, are fruits, vegetables, bread and seafood. Today it is a tourist attraction for those who want to shop like the locals do. I did not expect that I would be able to get any of the stallkeeper’s face but fortunately I got one eye!

Très drôle, on dirait qu'il a un immense chapeau.

This is good Ayush, shows the variety of his wares..
A good place to buy lovely dried peppers.
I really love the photo - it looks like he's got a giant wig!

nice candid shot
Ayush Basu: I was lucky on this account, Sherri.
I'm enjoying the Barcelona series, Ayush. The Boqueria is a great favourite. Mouth watering.
