Mercat Santa Caterina
Right next to Barcelona Cathedral, this market with its colorful ceramic roof is a real eye-catcher. Open every day except Sunday.
Mercat del Ninot
Just a stone's throw from Catalonia Square, this is the favorite market of Catalans who live in the city center, because it's less touristy, recently renovated and formidably well-stocked. Open every day except Sunday.
Mercat Sant Antoni
El Mercat de Sant Antoni is the food market with no fewer than 95 stalls, but it's also a market known as Encants aux puces (flea market), with lots of stores selling clothes, books and jewelry.
Open Monday to Saturday. On Sundays, from 08:30 to 14:30, a book and coin market takes place all around the building.
Mercat del Encants
Barcelona's flea market has come a long way since its renovation in 2013. The new architecture consolidates its position as the largest and best-known flea market in the Catalan capital. You'll always find what you're looking for! Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Boqueria market remains the must-see on Barcelona's Ramblas. Overcrowded, to be sure, but still very much worth a visit, with its quality produce, bars and great atmosphere. Always a safe bet! Open daily from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Closed on Sundays.
