About the Farm to Fork, the Boqueria and Beyond Walk in Barcelona
The reigning queen of Barcelona’s vibrant market network, La Boqueria attracts Michelin-starred chefs and local grandmothers equally. As the center of the city food scene and epicenter of Catalan gastronomy, La Boqueria offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience the sites, smells, and tastes of culinary Barcelona. During this three-hour walk, we’ll explore the market and its surroundings, tracing the history of food in this culinary city, and getting a basic overview of regional Catalan gastronomy.
We begin at the intersection of Carrer de la Boqueria and La Rambla, the ancient seat of La Boqueria, which was founded in the 13th century, making it one of Europe’s oldest markets. As we head toward the modern market, which has been relocated to a modern glass and steel structure nearby, we’ll discuss the long history of public markets in this city, from the medieval period to their revitalization in the 1990s.
