I love markets. The vibrant colors. The different products. The scents and the whole tactile experience. The little samples stallholders hand out. The freshness of it all.
Barcelona has a brilliant market, just off La Rambla, the wide thoroughfare in the central city. In the mornings, it’s the domain of locals who stop by to fill their shopping carts with fresh produce or who linger at one of the stalls serving coffee and food. During the afternoon the market teams with tourists. It’s the time for snacks of fresh fruit, tapas, and lots of visitors, like me, take photos.
Do you like markets too? Do you have a favorite?
