The Markets of Barcelona

Written by Thomas

Barcelona is a city famed for its multitude of markets. Some have been open since the 19th century, and many new ones pop up every year. They range from the regular hustle of the famous Boqueria to small one-off arts and crafts markets. For the city’s residents, they provide the opportunity to avoid the impersonal and homogeneous high street chains and supermarkets in favour of a more intimate and attractive way of shopping, while for tourists they are an attraction in their own right.

In addition to ShBarcelona’s guides to the city’s best social events, business events and long-running exhibitions, you can find here information on all the city’s markets open in the coming weeks, including details on their location, opening hours and the type of produce they offer, from fresh foods to second hand clothes.

Throughout the week, La Boqueria, Mercat Santa Caterina, El Encants, and all the other regular Barcelona markets will be operating as usual. And there’s always guaranteed to be a number of other markets temporarily setting up shop in the city, which in the coming weeks include the returns of the Lost & Found market for curated treasures and the Pre-Christmas Euroabducted second hand market. To ensure you don’t miss any of Barcelona’s many markets, ShBarcelona provides full coverage of what’s on in the coming weeks below…
