The mercat de La boqueria is famous, but can be busy. This market on the other hand felt like a place where locals go to get groceries. If you need to pick up some items for a stay and avoid the crowds, I would go...More

Well just dive into this wonderful and colorful market. I was not cooking during my visit, but the vendors didn’t mind my interest without buying anything! Long discussions about how to cook goats head, what’s different about duck eggs, where does this and that grow?...More

A great free stop off with something for anyone who eats. The range and freshness of the produce puts the U.K. shelves to shame! Don’t forget to pick up a sample cone of ham, cheese or sausage for €1 - €3 👍🏻

We visited 3 markets in Barcelona last week - the Boqueria, St Antoni, and Santa Caterina. As soon as we walked in we knew this was, for us, the best of the three. It is a true functioning neighbourhood market, not overrun with people just...More

The display of the food products is stunning. And you can buy some prepared food for your lunch. I loved the fresh fruit juice.

While La Boqueria is bigger, prettier and close to La Rambla, I bought more at the Santa Caterina market. La Boqueria has lots freshly butchered meats and beautiful colorful vegetables all arranged in stunning displays but as I stayed in a hotel I could not...More

This market is less touristy and crowded compared to Mercado de La Boqueria. There are many stalls selling fresh meat, fish, fruits and produce. There are also small restaurants serving food and drinks. I bought some apples and peaches here. I personally prefer this quieter...More

A nice little market. Not too many stalls but it’s got several fruit, meat, nuts stalls so it’s got all I’m looking for. It’s just not so Instagram-friendly compared to Boqueria as it’s not as ‘fancy’ as Boqueria but other than that it’s excellent. One...More

Not much for tourists to see other than the actual fresh food market the locals use. If you want fruit or cheese this is a good place to get some.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

5 minutes walk. You will see the colourful roof of the market in distance from the square in front of the catedral.
