La Boqueria

Located just off the famous boulevard known as La Rambla, La Boqueria is the largest and most impressive of Barcelona’s many food markets, and is no doubt one of the reasons the city is so renowned for its market culture. La Boqueria continues to be the destination of choice for many of the city’s chefs who get there early to have their pick of the best produce.

Mercat de Santa Caterina

This is another of Barcelona’s most famous markets, easily recognizable for its curvy, multi-colored roof and located just off the Via Laietana in the Born neighborhood. As with La Boqueria, prices can sometimes be a little higher at Santa Caterina than in some of the lesser known markets, but many of the stalls sell first quality produce and it’s a great place to look for speciality ingredients.

Mercat de Sant Antoni

Relatively unknown to those who don’t live in the city, Sant Antoni market is set to be the next big thing. Located in the heart of Barcelona’s Sant Antoni neighbourhood, the original market building has been undergoing renovation work since 2009. Renovations are due to be completed within a couple of years and this is set to become Barcelona’s next destination market.

Mercat de la Barceloneta

Hidden away from the main street and the waterfront, La Barceloneta market is the traditional bartering ground of the city’s fishermen’s wives. This small but characterful neighborhood was once the hub of Barcelona’s fishing industry. A trip to La Barceloneta market is a chance to get a glimpse of this tight-knit community and see some of the finest fish and seafood from the local coastline.

La Llibertat Market

Located in the heart of Gràcia, one of Barcelona’s coolest and most popular neighborhoods, La Llibertat market is mostly known to locals who know which stall to visit for sundry food items. Like many of the lesser known markets in the city, it has a more relaxed atmosphere.

La Llibertat, Plaça Llibertat, 27, Barcelona, Spain, +34 932 170 995
