La Boqueria food market, Barcelona

A stone’s throw further south just off La Rambla is Barcelona’s legendary indoor food market and maybe Spain’s most colourful and exquisite assemblage of fruit, vegetable and fish retail stalls. This amazing ground floor metal-roofed space of generous dimensions is officially known as the Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria as is clearly manifest from the colourful plaque that hangs above the main doorway. But in ten days I spent in Barcelona, I have never heard anybody referring to the place with its full name but rather more conveniently as La Boqueria.
