City Bites Barcelona Boqueria Bites Questions and Answers
How do I get my tickets once I’ve bought them?
Boqueria Bites tickets are collected at our offices in Passatge de la Pau 10, entresuelo 2-A, 08002 Barcelona, a few minutes walk from the Boqueria market. The office opening hours are: Monday to Friday, 10 am to 6 pm. There’s no need to worry about postal delivery, so it’s possible to enjoy the self-guided tasting tour on the same day that you buy your tickets (except on Sundays when the market is closed to the public). Immediately after completing your purchase, you’ll receive an email with a link to a web page with instructions, contact information and a map illustrating where to get your tickets.
Do I need to bring my purchase confirmation in order to pick up my tickets?
Yes, please. Immediately after you place your order, your details will be sent to our ticket pickup system, so all you need to do is show up to the collection point, identify yourself, provide the booking number you received in your order confirmation, and enjoy your tasting experience.
Aside from the tickets themselves, will I receive any materials with information about the Boqueria Market?
Certainly! The same web page that has instructions on how to get your tickets, includes a link to a downloadable, printable, comprehensive guide for the independent Boqueria visitor. The guide has been specifically created by the City Bites Barcelona team to enable an optimized experience and overall visit to the Boqueria Market. The guide also includes a recommended route for an ideal Boqueria tour, complete with notable details to pay attention to along the route, anecdotes, entertaining tales from the market´s history and more.
What are the days and hours during which I can enjoy my Boqueria Bites ticket?
We recommend using the Boqueria Bites tickets from 09:00-19:00 (9AM-7PM) Mondays through Saturdays. While the Boqueria opens a bit earlier and closes a bit later than the hours mentioned above, these are the optimal times for receiving the shopkeepers’ full attention. The fresh produce will already be on the shelves, and the shopkeepers will be delighted to provide you with service, tastings and smiles.
The Boqueria Market is open six days a week, but closed on Sundays. On Mondays or during the week in the early hours, it is often less crowded and more comfortable for exploring; towards the end of the week, and especially on Fridays, the market is much more alive and busy, and we recommend that you arrive with patience and time in order to enjoy the full experience.
Are all of the items available for tasting with the Boqueria Bites ticket thought for special religious or dietary requirements?
Although we are sensitive to the many cultures and dietary needs, we cannot accommodate all of them. However, in our experience, tour participants and market vendors alike, will be content to accommodate any request versus possibilities.
Must I complete the tastings in one visit to the market?
No way! We’ve taken into account that many of you won’t be able to make the rounds all in one go, so we’ve arranged for the ticket to be usable over multiple trips to the Boqueria Market.
Are the tastings on the tickets for one person, or for a couple?
They are meant for one person, but you are free to share.
Can I buy the Boqueria Bites tickets as a gift for someone else?
Of course! Just contact us after you place your order, specifying the name of the gift recipient, or whoever will be picking the ticket up at the pick-up point. The name that you specify will be the one that will appear in our ticket pickup system, and no additional documentation is necessary.
