Top Markets in Barcelona

From food to antiques and just about everything in between, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for—and probably a whole lot more—at Barcelona’s best markets. Read on for some recommendations for where to go, how to get there, and what to buy.

La Boqueria Market (Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria)

Officially called the Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, this centrally located market—situated just off La Rambla—opened back in 1853, and offers a literal taste of what makes the Catalan capital tick. Peruse the many stalls of produce, meats, fish, and pastries; then, once you’ve worked up an appetite, grab a stool at one of several open-air bars to sample some tapas. Most Barcelona city tours stop at La Boqueria.

Santa Caterina Market (Mercat de Santa Caterina)

Opened in 1848, the recently refurbished Mercat de Santa Caterina in the La Ribera district can be easily recognized by its colorful, undulating rooftop. The traditional interior teems with food stalls and restaurants, including the excellent Cuines Santa Caterina, a great place for a market-inspired meal.

Sant Antoni Market (Mercat de Sant Antoni)

Local shop here for produce, meats, and fresh seafood, along with home goods and other products. Traditional tapas bars serve up local flavors.

Encants Vells

The Encants Vells (Old Charms) flea market, located near the Torre Agbar, is the largest of its kind in Barcelona. With more than 500 stalls plying their wares, it’s heaven for treasure hunters on the lookout for bargains on secondhand items and antiques of all sorts.

Concepcio Market (Mercat de la Concepcio)

Housed in a lovely historic building near the Sagrada Familia, the Mercat de la Concepcio is most famous for its colorful and fragrant flower market, but shoppers will also find wines, olive oils, baked goods, and fresh produce.
