And you thought your local market was old. With a history that dates back to 1217, the Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria isn't just old — it's one of the best-known markets in Europe. And for good reason. This huge indoor bazaar sells everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to seafood, dried fruits, cheeses, nuts, olives, preserves, and even ready-made meals. The market is also home to two tapas bars, as well as a number of paella stands and, in case you need a little help cooking up your bounty, a food school.
