Who doesn’t like a good food market? There is something about a good food market, even when you’re not necessarily hungry, that you won’t find in any other shopping experience.
You will be looking with your eyes, your nose and if you’ve got an appetite, with your tongue as well.
Here are some of the best food markets you should add to your foodie bucket list.
La Boqueria: Barcelona
When in Barcelona, you will surely have a huge number of things you want to see and do.
La Boqueria market should most definitely be one of them.
Fortunately it is easily accessible just off Las Ramblas, so you should have no issues finding it (or making a bit of time for it as you traverse the Ramblas).
Whilst there, you will have a treat for all senses!
One of best parts of La Boqueria is the selection of fruits and fruit-products.
On a hot summer day, there is nothing more refreshing than the fruit ice-lollies from one of the stores or a cup of freshly cut fruit.
Healthy, and tasty!
Borough Market: London
A foodie’s London visit is incomplete without a stop at Borough market.
The range of food-related experiences you can have here are incredible!
Did you know that the market’s history can be traced back 1000 years?
From cheeses, street food, and specialized products, good luck on not going overboard.
Whilst you’re here, grab some food, hope for some sunshine, and make a picnic out of it by the river bank.

Spice Bazaar: Istanbul
It may be called the Spice Bazaar, but here you will find so much more!
At the Spice Bazaar, you will also find souvenirs and bits and bobs, but don’t focus on those.
Head towards the towers of turkish delights (for some great quality turkish delights, go check out Hazar Baba, specifically their rose and pomegranate varieties) or the olives and cheese stalls.
You’ll have a good variety of sweet and salty as well as heaps of spices as well. T
he hustle and bustle of the market makes the experience all the more incredible.
Neighbourgoods Market: Johannesburg & Cape Town
Not only is South Africa an incredible country to visit, but the food and wine scene is equally as incredible.
Visit the Neighbourgoods market on a Saturday and feel the buzzing energy of good food, good wine, and good company.
Just in case you thought it can’t get any better, you can also enjoy live music and a stroll around the stalls as well.
Or Tor Kor Market: Bangkok
If you’re looking for raw produce or some hot food, the Or Tor Kor Market has got your back!
Not only is it a market, but there is also a food court for you to satiate any hunger.
This is a great place to check whether you are a tourist or live in Bangkok.
And if not for hot food, the Or Tor Kor Market would be a great place to buy some delicious fresh fruit.
St. Lawrence Market: Toronto
If you are across the pond in Canada, and happen to be visiting Toronto, check out the St. Lawrence market for lots of fresh food options.
There are around 120 vendors, so you will definitely be spoilt for choice here.
Not only will you get a whole range of options, but they also rent out spaces for exhibitions, cultural events as well as antique markets.
You never know what you will find!
And if you are looking for event space, the St. Lawrence Hall can also be let for weddings and special occasions.
