“Cleaner, brighter and friendlier than Boqueria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

You will find this market just a few streets from the Barcelona Cathedral - you will recognize it by the colorful wavy roof. Lots of local people doing real shopping for beautiful produce and fresh meats, and not as touristy as the Boqueria. Clean and nice, and a Dia supermarket right next store if you need to do some grocery shopping at a good price.

“Great small market with neighborhood flair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Smaller than Boqueria, but friendlier and cozier. We sat down at a corner restaurant and had a full meal at fixed price. Can't remember the name ofrthe price, but it was delicious and affordable. Highly recommend this.

Great little market near out hotel, and we had a great lunch outside as well. Can't believe I missed this the first 3 times I was in this city!

“Loved the market and the area leading up to it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

The market has a great colorful roof. Inside it's nicely laid out. Since it's just meats and produce, we didn't buy much, but it was very enjoyable. Across the street there was a great patisserie. We ended up there a couple of times. A nice place to rest the feet.

“Very cool roof...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

A little less hectic than La Boqueria, this market has an amazing neo-Gaudi roof (built in 2005). The market itself has fewer stalls, but still an impressive assortment of types of food on display.
