Like the Boqueria market but larger and without tourist… Colorful stalls for alimentation, fruit, vegetables, fish and seafood, the Mercat de Sant Antoni at the southwestern edge of the Raval is one of the largest market halls in Barcelona still in activity. The steel-skeleton building (1872-82) by Antoni Rovira i Trias occupies the area of a complete block of streets and the market offers also tapas bars.
On Sunday from 8.30am to 2.30pm just around the outside of the building there is a book and coin market for all the collectors out there. You will find a tremendous assortment of old books, magazines, comics, postcards, records, coins, stamps but also textiles..
