Flavors of La Boqueria Market

Barcelona, Spain

Experience hosted by Lucy

  1. 3 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

We already know that LA BOQUERIA is the most visited food market in Barcelona - and maybe the most famous one around the mediterranean sea. But I would like to take you to walk around the food market to see from another perspective, to walk (and shopping) like a local. Let's see what La Boqueria represents to the catalans that go there every day to buy the most fresh products.

In this tour we will visit La Boqueria market like a local does, trying the most typical food and soaking up the Mediterranean vibe around us, we believe that mediterranean is not a place, but an attitude. We'll learn more about the importance of fresh and organic products in Mediterranean cuisine.

Did this description made you hungry? So wait until we start the experience tasting the best Spanish and Catalan food. We will start with a small breakfast in one of the most emblematic restaurants of the market, trying Mediterranean oysters and olives, and we won't forget the Spanish ham, the famous Jamon de bellota. The best chef in the market also will prepare us a special menu for lunch with spanish wine or the catalan cava, of course.
Other things to note
- The menu can be adapted for vegetarians.

- This experience is designed for guests older than 16 years old, but it can always be adapted for kids. You're welcome to ask more about it.

- I'm always avaiable to help and answer any questions about the tour.

Hello I'm Lucy!!

A Brazilian girl who fell in love with Barcelona so badly that I felt compelled to move here and am constantly on a mission to get to know every corner of the city.
I always though that the best way to know a new culture it is by the food, and that’s why I dived myself into the Spanish cuisine and wine production. My previous experience in restaurants business took me easily inside the kitchen of the best places in town. I had the opportunity to know great chefs of high gastronomy or street food, and now I want to share what I’ve learned.
I will take you to try the best of the Mediterranean/Spanish gastronomy, and have a lunch cooked by the mythic cuisine chef at La Boqueria Market.
