Market full of everything. Sights and smells and tastes that you do get every day. The seafood stalls are a lessen marine science. From fish and meat to candy and spices, it's all here. Most of it is reasonably priced. Be sure to stop at El Quim for a quick sit down snack...yum

An amazing place! In the small Place it has concentrated everything as soul desires. Fresh seafood, almonds, sweets and fruit, meat and vegetables - there is everything - it is colossal! All you can taste. Here is a small restaurants and eateries with different tastes and wallet thickness. Definitely I recommend to taste fresh oysters!

Fun for a quick stroll through, but don't bother purchasing anything -- food's not great and it's fairly overpriced. Still fun from a tourist perspective, but beware of pickpockets.

The market literally has everything you want to eat - fruits, icecream, sausages, ham, and so much more. My friends and I ate at one of the restaurants on the side of the market for paella and it was one of the best paella we have ever had in the whole of Barcelona. The food in the market itself is...

Based on other reviews, we went and had a look, ate there and bought some fruit. The cafe food was good, especially the seafood; the prices are higher than other market food stalls - try Mercat Santa Caterina, which seemed more genuinely a market and is less crowded, for a better market experience.

This is truly a feast for all senses! You'll be overwhelmed by the colour, variety of produce on offer! If you're a foodie, you will LOVE this market, which is purportedly the largest produce market in Europe. There are loads of stalls selling jamon, cheese, fruit and vegetables, cooked food, fruit juices, spices, oils, nuts and sweets as gifts and... More

This place was so packed, it was hard to get in on a weekday in mid-May. The tourists have taken over. Try to go off hours so you can actually see the variety of foods. LOTS of places to grab a bite so go hungry.

This is truly an amazing market. Try a whole bunch of food. No need to sit and eat. Many different spots to enjoy food, drinks and desserts !! A simply great market even if you don't want to buy anything. Juice = 1€ Fruit cups= 1,50€ Definitely not touristy pricing. On la Ramblas it's often 2€ for a juice. 2... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
