About
Mercantic, situated in Sant Cugat del Valles, and seven minutes from Barcelona, is the most unique and original venue in Spain for the trade of antiques, vintage pieces, handicrafts and decoration. Depending on the day, 150 to 300 dealers gather there. They are situated in different spaces. Some are in shops and stands in the outside patio, and others in small stores inside the building that was once a ceramic factory. Every Sunday, in the outdoor patio there is a lively market where you can find unusual collections of antiques and "hand made" items. A special highlight is the "El Siglo" bookstore where you can enjoy concerts and Vermouths while browsing the exposition and sale of 150,000 antique and used books. Another event not to miss is the "VINTAGE FEST" which takes place the first Sunday of each month in the patio and on the surrounding streets. There you can purchase antiques, collectibles and handicrafts. Many dealers, buyers and browsers participate. And aside from enjoying a lovely "passage through time", Mercantic offers a daily variety of restaurants and other food services like the Xiringuit, the Cafe de Belgrado and the concerts/vermouths of the Siglo. More than 10,000 m2 to stroll, browse, touch, buy and enjoy for a while.

We got the train from Placa Catalunya (FGC) and got off at Volpelleres, which is one stop after Sant Cugat.
Some excellent antique items and a wonderful lighting shop that sells leaded lights and Tiffany lamps

You can find every kind of furniture as well as many books which was so interesting for my son and for us, adults. Live jazz concert was the reason to go this time and live music makes the atmosphere even better than ever.

We visited whilst staying in Barcelona. Decided to make the trip due to persistent rain . It’s about 45 mins on the train plus a 10 minute walk . Well worth the trip with some superb antiques on offer . We also had a great meal in one of the many restaurants. A good afternoon activity would definitely visit again .

Mercantic is more than an antiques market. It's a space where you can find the most incredible objects and you can have fun. Live music and a great food and cultural offer.It's an old brick factory that was working since the eighties.You can't loose this place!

Well then, the place is totally worth it...a nice ambiance, curiosities and art. Food trucks offer nice meals, though at a cost...
The issue is that amidst true jewels you will find most garbage at very high prices...some call it vintage though
The place has really improved lately and looks really nice.

A good Sunday morning activity for sure.

If you love markets in general you would like it. if you love antiques and wood you will just come here every weekend. every saturday and sunday they have a program of music. You can go alone or with family, many things to see and haunt for. lots of beautiful items ( not expensive ).
