#10 of 159 in Shopping in Barcelona
Soak up some Barcelona culture by diving into the atmosphere of Mercat de la Barceloneta, a huge draw for both impassioned foodies and architecture enthusiasts. The market occupies a modern building constructed of glass and steel and serves as a major landmark in one of Barcelona's most colorful neighborhoods. Inside is the usual setup of vegetable and meat stalls, as well as several sit-down eateries where you can rest and grab a warm meal. Although safe and friendly, the market gets extremely busy during lunchtime, so it's a good idea to leave your personal items at the hotel.

  • Great market to go to shop or just to eat a high quality lunch and with really fresh products!

  • If you walk across the Ramblas, you should make a small stop here. Great goods, you can see and taste a lot. The ham is recommended, what a pleasure! The tapas are also lace, impressive (for German conditions) the size of the vegetables/fruits.

  • This is the place to go for fresh fish and all types of local specialties. The reason I'm not giving it 5 stars, is that it's not exactly cheap and that you need to get there rather early. However, if you go for the seafood that is in season, you can prepare great dishes that are at least as good as what you get in most restaurants for only a fraction of the price.
  • This is where the locals go for lunch. Always very good, especially the fish, always perfect and very pricy.
