Day 13- World's Best Market
The farmers market here in Barcelona, Mercat de la Boqueria is ranked on of the best farmers markets in the world (according to CNN at least). It is located off the very popular La Rambla which is basically the tourist/ party street. It is slightly hidden so if you are on La Rambla look for the Dunkin Donuts then go down that street. It is a bit overwhelming, you walk in and it is made up of vendors selling fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, cheeses and my favorite olives and olive oil. I think the people back home know what kind of souvie they are getting from Spain. We bought ginger flavored olive oil, so good! The market also has cafe's and bars mixed in of course..... We didn't even make it through the entire thing but something tells me I will be back.
