Sant Josep Market in Barcelona
The largest market in Barcelona can be found just off La Rambla, it is called the Sant Josep Market or simply known as La Boquería. Filled with locals, tourists, foodies and purveyors, it is a bustling community gathering place that is part of everyday life.
And be sure to stop by the tapas bar El Quim which is right inside the market. It is often listed as one of the BEST restaurants in Barcelona. I can't say I would add this to my best list although it was good. Go for the braised ox tail, mixed wild mushrooms, the patatas bravas, the croquettes were quite good, and of course their signature dish: eggs and baby squid.
