This market is less touristy and crowded compared to Mercado de La Boqueria. There are many stalls selling fresh meat, fish, fruits and produce. There are also small restaurants serving food and drinks. I bought some apples and peaches here. I personally prefer this quieter...More

A nice little market. Not too many stalls but it’s got several fruit, meat, nuts stalls so it’s got all I’m looking for. It’s just not so Instagram-friendly compared to Boqueria as it’s not as ‘fancy’ as Boqueria but other than that it’s excellent. One...More

Not much for tourists to see other than the actual fresh food market the locals use. If you want fruit or cheese this is a good place to get some.

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.
