Jamon in the Boqueria

Thanks for all the suggestions! We're staying right in the middle, between the Eixample and Gothic quarter, so it looks like we have choices. I was hoping to make Boqueria our "one stop" food shopping headquarters, but it looks like we'll have to spread it around a little. That's fine. We're here for almost a week so we'll have fun exploring new markets.

Jamon in the Boqueria

Hi. I've done some research on the Boqueria in Barcelona and apparently there are dozens of vendors selling Jamon bellota. So the obvious question arises... should I seek out a particular vendor to get my Jamon on? I'm not trying to buy a whole jamon. I just want to assemble a "do it yourself" jamon sampler, trying jamon from different regions and different parts on the pig. I've read about Jamonisimo, but I'm looking for an easy/cheaper "go-to" place for Jamon. Somewhere that I can go daily to get my fix. I'll be in Barcelona for five days.

Is it better just to buy a plate or bocadillo from one of the tapas stalls? Any advice would be much appreciated!
