One of the (many) great things about Barcelona are the markets – on any given day, especially during the spring and summer months, you are likely to come across some sort of street or indoor market. I think I came across at least twenty markets randomly when walking around the city during my last month spent here.
There were many that I didn’t make it to yet, you do have to leave some for my next trip 🙂 So here are three of the markets that I came across and that I will definitely be revisiting again.
This is probably the best market I went to for everything from locally made clothes, beautiful handmade jewellery, second hand clothes, juices, food stalls, artisan breads and good coffee trucks.
This market takes place in the train cartier bracelet love price
station Estacion de Francia- with the clothes and jewellery in the front section of the station and the food and coffee stalls in the back section.
Also a plus is there are tables to sit down and enjoy the space and toilets – it is indoors also for those rare rainy days.
My particular loves at this were : Wild We and their awesome clothes – I seriously wanted every one of their shirts!! (See Frida collection!!!) – Agua Handmade Backpacks – Gorgeous local and handmade backpacks, some really nice handmade necklaces and jewellery from Ann Acid as well as the food stalls out the back serving some tasty grub.
Nice general vibe here and live music on the go at certain times.
Location Estacion De Francia, Av. del Marquès de l’Argentera, s/n, 08003 Barcelona, Spain
Mercat De la Terra
I have mentioned this market a few times now in my blog posts and I do like it. It is more for stocking up on local, artisan food and soaking up the atmosphere and the usually great live music.
There are plenty of organic fruit and veg on offer, my all time favourite sugar-free chocolate is sold here by Bonaris – who have their own cacao plantation in Peru and they make their own bars of delicious chocolate, so many flavours to choose from (sugar and not sugar free). There is a bread and cake stall from Horno Santa Madrona (I fell in love with their bio carrot and fig spelt load) and the part-solar powered organic coffee and tea truck La Cantina Solar.
You can also find locally made honey, craft beer, vermot and cheese and other local suppliers with their produce.
It usually runs on a Saturday morning but had changed to Tuesday evenings for the summer months,

This was a pretty cool market – loads of second hand and vintage clothes and other items as well as a variety of different food trucks and some pretty sweet tunes by the resident DJ.
It took place beside the marina, so it was a really great way to spent a couple of hours walking around, checking out some of the funky bits and taking some time to sit back, listen to the music by the water side.
Ah, I do miss the sunshine markets on the streets of Barcelona – there really is no shortage of cool markets and these three are some of the ones that I came across and really enjoyed.
Location Moll de la Fusta, 08002, Barcelona
