This is a typical market and has meat and cheese vendors that our guide took us to see and taste. They are all very friendly. Walk around the outside so you can see the roof. Inside they kept remains of what they found when they...More

This market tries to imitate its bigger and more popular market on the Ramblas. It is quiet and very clean, but lacks the authenticity of a "real" fruit and vegetables market - a bit "plastic"

This market is relatively new, but nice and not as touristic as some others. The restaurant on the corner has great food!

A really good local market, well worth a visit and make sure you stop at Bar Joan’s for a couple of drinks and probably the best tapas available, very cheap too because it’s there for the locals not us tourists

Agree with the other posters that this is the best local market - not crowded and truly a market rather than a tourist spot. We made several visits to pick up fresh fruit, ham, and cheeses, and we also found some reasonably priced saffron and...More

Love this market. My favorite are the fresh fruit juices. But you can buy just about anything else here. The displays are beautiful, and it is so alive. Good place for lunch. A must!

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

5 minutes walk. You will see the colourful roof of the market in distance from the square in front of the catedral.
