Upon entry, my eyes went straight to a clear, plastic cup of a grass green liquid dotted with dark seeds. It was fresh-squeezed kiwi juice. And it cost €1 ($1.36). I can only imagine how refreshing that juice would have been in the heat of a Barcelona summer. And I wished I had more time there so I could take home some of the bounty and create a feast.
It was fun to take a quick spin around the indoor market, and peruse the different stalls. Sure, a lot of them were slinging the same things, but I’m sure the patrons have their favorites they go back to over and over again. Listen up, Obama…while you’re tackling this health care issue, have Michelle work on instating markets like Boqueria around the country. If people saw what this market had to offer, they’d never eat KFC again.
I'm glad you finally had time to go to the Boqueria market 😉 It's a "must visit place" in Barcelona! Also, you were very smart to buy the 1€ juices (at the entrance door they usually sell the same ones for 3€!!!). I hope you're having a great time in Southern Spain! A big hug from Barcelona (sunny again)!Rosie
Thanks Rosie! The market was so cool, and I'm glad we got a good deal on the juice. It was sooo good! Southern Spain is great, but the weather sucks. It's rained the entire time I've been here. I wish I was in sunny Barca for a bike ride. Miss you guys! ~ Kyle
