La Boqueria

This famous, old market reminded me of the Turkish markets in Istanbul that I had the fortune to visit several years back. La Boqueria had just about any kind of fresh food you could want: fish, Iberian ham, interesting cuts of meat, fresh fruit (and excellent juice), veggies, nuts of all sorts, fudge, candy, and much more. I thought this display of peppers was particularly representative of the atmosphere. The bustle of the marketplace, however, is missing from this photograph.
