    Market at Plaza del Pi

    by SirRichard Written Nov 28, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the Pi Square, in the Gothic Quarter ther is a street market, I think is on saturdays only, where you can find some local products, mainly gastronomy: local cheeses, ham, honey... products produced in Catalonia, in the countryside.

    La Boqueria / Mercat de Sant Josep: La Boqueria, just visit, don't buy

    by vec Written Oct 26, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visiting Mercat de Sant Josep, also called LA Boqueria is a colourful experience. But be aware of the prices if you are planning to buy something, it's not cheap, and it seems like they are not so willing to bargain on the price when tourists are buying.

    This popular food market has some of the best food stands in all Spain. The quality is excellent and the presentation too. OK, you won't buy many fresh food, but anyway, the place deserves a visit, not only for the local ambiance, but also for the architecture of the place and the nice coloured glass.

    Spanish writer Vazquez Montalban, known as a gourmet, came here daily to buy fresh products...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just one street away from our rented appartment in the Gracia area, we could find a lot of things in this little supermarket.
    We didn't had to worry to starve !

    What to buy: They had beverages, lots of prepacked ham and cheese, fresh baguettes, milk and all other kinds of allimentary food.

    What to pay: Milk, cheese, ham, coffee, bread, beer, cola, water, napkins... we spent about 27 Euro's and it was sufficient to cover the breakfasts of 4 days staying.

    The Mercat St. Josep, also known as Mercat de la Boqueria was opened in 1836. It is a roofed catalan market and a sight in itsself. There is a great offer on fresh food, vegetables, fruits and fish available. Moreover a few bars inside invite for an affordable local lunch.

    Open-Air Markets

    by CanadianinSpain Written May 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a morning day-trip outside of the city and visit the open-air markets. On Sundays there's a huge market in the town of Canovellas. .

    What to buy: You can find anything under the sun at this market from chickens to the latest fashions in clothing or shoes. Prices for goods are much, much cheaper than in shops. One piece of advice is not to bargain. People here don't bargain in the markets like you can in other countries

    What to pay: Great leather shoes or sandals for about 12-20 Euro.

    La Boqueria: Mercat de la Boqueria

    On one of the turns from the Rambla avenue you can find the roofed market, Mercat de la Boqueria. There you'll find fruits, vegetables, fish, cheese, cakes and many other delicious looking stuff. Another nice market is the St. Antoni market, known by locals as Mercat de St. Antoni, which is located between the streets of St. Pau and St. Antoni. Besides food the later market also contains all sorts of textiles and clothes.

    market on carrer de valencia: fresh veggies, flowers and meat

    by call_me_rhia Written Nov 2, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    it's a bit similar, but in a smaller scale, to the more famous bouqueria market. This gorgian-lookalike covered market on carrer de valencia is a lot more low-key and uncrowded. An unexpected nice surpise.

    What to buy: flowers and vegetables... but also meat products

    What to pay: the average, or even less
