This is a fabulous covered market on the edge of Las Ramblas. Bustling and crowded, this is a real market frequented by local people buying their provisions. There are lots and lots of stalls selling fresh food - all sorts of meat, fish and vegetables. There are also lots of little food stalls where you can buy hot and cold snacks. It really is a great experience and well worth a visit.

This market offers a lot of great food - both raw (pork, especially, and seafood, of course) as well as cooked. Smoothies, tapas, pastries (less of those), wine, and even some souvenirs, it's all there, but in a space that is too small for the number of people wanting to visit on a normal day. Our first visit was not too bad, it was not a weekend. Fortunately that was the day I chose to find Quim de la Quim (pardon my spelling) which is where Phil Rosenthal cooked and ate in his wonderful food and travel show. If you are looking for a place to sample all sorts of things Barcelona then this is a decent place to visit. Compared to the Time Out market in Lisbon I found it less visually appealing, less varied, more crowded, and overall less appealing. I think it is worth a visit if you can go on a less-busy day and limit your time there to maybe an hour or two at most.

This must be the craziest (in a good way) "Farmers Market" you can imagine. Unlimited amounts of great quality fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and seafood. We purchased from various vendors and they were all "spot-on" - Beware of pickpocket business here, as one of our friends had her wallet stolen.

Such a great market to visit. Spanish, Mediterranean, fresh fish and meat.
Beautiful food, fresh, you can buy although prices are a little high.
It's very busy so be mindful of your belonging.

The stalls are filled with awesome foods, the aisles are filled with interested visitors. Stop in and grab some lunch, or something to take home....
