Boqueria market in the morning

I've read that the 'official' opening time for the Boqueria market in Barcelona is 8am....but I've also read several travel articles that discuss going to the market very early...before 7-6am.

As I will only have a 2 half days in BCN as I pass thru in November, I would like to make an early morning visit if possible. Can someone please clarify what is and is not at open at the Boqueria in the early AM?

Thanks

Their official website says 8am. I never get there before noon because of how late we go to bed when in Barcelona. Even noon is a stretch but El Quim de la Boqueria calls my name in my dreams...

I so want to go to Quim and Pinotoxo...but in my 2 nights in BCN I have to depart on morning flights at 8am. But I had a ray of hope when I read this NYTimes articlequot;. I had a mission: to watch La Boqueria wake up. Anyone can browse the marketís jam-packed stalls in the day, but I wanted to go behind the scenes to get a vendorís-eye view of the action. When I arrived at 5, butchers were slicing whole pigs into pork chops,.....After taking a million photos, I ordered a cortado (a small strong coffee with a small amount of milk) and croissant (2 euros) at Pinotxo, one of the handful of tapas bars. By 6, serious shoppers were starting to crowd in, and I was already exhausted."
