I am a massive foodie, always have been and always will be. I’ve always been facinated about food, from the flavours, textures and how it looks. So obviously finding out that Barcelona had a food market just off of St Rambles I had to take a detour back to my Air BnB to check it out.
If you ever go to Barcelona definitely make sure you check out the Barcelona Food Markets like this food market Mercado de La Boqueria at La Rambla, 91, 08001 It’s honestly so amazing and I would go back to Barcelona just to go back to this market. Although I didn’t actually know that there was so many different food markets in Berlin because I definitely would of tried them all out, but because this was the most raved about and easiest to find I’m glad I went to this one.
They sell so many different types of foods and drinks from fresh fruit juices which are absolutely devine so cooked baby octopus, which is also amazing. You can get seafood, cooked or raw (to cook at home, it’s not sushi.) Fruit, chocolate covered things, churros, meat, paella, cheese, loads of other cooked foods. There’s just so much to chose from that you will definitely want to visit more than once.
The octopus is something that I still dream about.
Be aware that it is usually super busy, I went on my own and did feel a little bit like a sardine in a tin. I also didn’t have enough arms to carry and eat everything I wanted. Also the only reason I bought this coconut is for the photo puposes, I think it was only about €1 and thought it would look great on my Instagram.
I would say to definitely give it a go at least once, have a sangria, eat some food, take loads of photos. Just enjoy yourself.
