Portal de L'Angel (near Ramblas) is a pedestrian-only street which has an outdoor market and other shops. We found some unique items in the market- jewelry, scarves, children's gifts, etc. This was a fun street to stroll down in the evening time as well.

On calle Tallers there are some cd stores where you can find cd/lps/dvds. There are some more on side streets, most of them small and focused on a specific style (ethnic, rock, jazz etc).
I checked CDDROME that has a lot of vinyls, mainly experimental, electro, new wave disco, minimal and only a few indie rock. The owner didn’t even say goodmorning, something that surprised me because usually the Spanish people are welcoming…

I, unfortunately, forgot to write down the name of this knife shop, however, I do know it is located on Carrer Ferran- on the right side coming from the Ramblas. This was a really cool shop and it offered some awesome, original looking blades and knives of all sorts and sizes. I am not a knife person, but it does make for a really cool gift for a guy. The shopkeeper also is very nice and will help you pick out a good knife that is in the price range you tell him you can spend.
What to pay: Range from 20 euros to thousands!

If you are in to making jewelry, this is the place to go. You have a huge choice of some gorgeous beads. However, I am not as crafty so I focused on the hand-made earrings of which I fell in love with. I bought just one pair and I now I regret not getting more. I have received so many compliments when I wear them!
What to pay: 8 euros for the earrings, but prices vary as the cost is calculated by the quantity and quality of the beads.

This tip could be placed as well on restaurants (you can have a good cus-cus for lunch, or for dinner during weekends here) or in "off the beaten path" as even in the very popular El Born area it's on a very quiet side-street.
But let's put it here, in shopping, as the fist impression of the place will be a fashion shop. Not mainstream fashion, as Otman Chentouf is the head of this project, a young Moroccan designer who moved to Barcelona some years ago. He exhibits his collections (clothing for men and women) in the front part of the store.
At the back of the shop you'll find a space with the typical Moroccan sofas, where you can enjoy a great Moroccan tea or eat something

I had heard about this Mercat (market) but I had no idea until I stumbled across it during an early morning walk how magnificent it is. This is the ultimate farmer's market of all farmer's markets. I had never seen anything remotely like this in the US. The Mercat has stand after stand of various food items with the most beautiful displays. Fruit, vegetables, meats, poultry, fish, shellfish, nuts, dried fruits, candy, tapas, mushrooms, nuts, spices, breads, cheeses. As an amateur cook, I was in heaven. It is held every day, I believe. Go early - before lunch is best. The stands start closing down in the afternoon, some earlier than others.

Yes, yes... I know there is THE famous La Boqueria Market off las Ramblas and that should be enough but I am always a bit picky and trying to find an alternative. well Saint Catherine's Market is much much smaller place but I preferred it to La Boqueria cos it was not so squishy-squashy crowded and definitely sellers were not artificially winding up prices as the guys from las ramblas. Much more quiet, no need to look around your shoulder in search of potential pickpockets, time to have a tasting of what u want to buy and a moment of conversation with shop assistants. Dont know maybe I was lucky and usually its also noisy and crowded, I visited the market on early Saturday afternoon..
What to buy: * best buys - jamon (ham), chorizo and other hard sausages, locally made olive oil, mozzarella-style local cheese, weigh-in olives marinated with garlic, tiny shallots, and even tinier cucumbers ----- personal favourite,
....and remember dont feel shy to ask to try something, shop assistants usually dont mind,
What to pay: much cheaper that famous La Boqueria as I mentioned before, if u are buying just few products as souvenirs from your trip I think u can expect to spend around 20-30 euros on that. Extended shopping ( local delicacies for whole family) - well... double or triple that amount.
aaaa and always try to bargain... no one minds and it is great fun :)
