Thursday’s Special

conducive to or suggestive of good health and physical well-being.


The Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, often simply referred to as La Boqueria [ɫa bɔkəˈɾiə] is a large public market in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain and one of the city’s foremost tourist landmarks, with an entrance from La Rambla. It is full of wholesome foodstuffs (and some not so wholesome)

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. I know YOU have at least one fab market in Melbourne because I have been to it – never in my life had I seen such HUGE avocados. Queen Victoria I think.

        2. Yes that’s true. Queen Victoria is correct. One of the photography groups did an excursion there recently but I wasn’t able to go. Their photos look good though!

    1. A day to stay indoors in front of a roaring fire with a good book. Do you have a fire? If not you can share mine 🙂

    1. I have some lovely shots of this market and an outdoor one. Once I finish with Norwich I may take a break from the UK trip and do some Barcelona posts.

    1. Naughty things? You mean the sweeties, the macaroons, the c.h.o.c.a.l.a.t.e? We did in fact buy juice and fruit salad 🙂

  1. As I have mentioned before, I love that market myself. One of these days, I will try to find the photos I took when I visited it. A nice splurge of colour on a dull day, Jude.
    Best wishes, Pete. x
