Mercat Santa Caterina Reviews
Love this Mercat, not as large as La Boqueria on la rambles but has everything you need. Colorful vegetables, great cheeses and olives and you can find a wonderful selection of jamon. Also, great... more »
Don’t get me wrong much more hygienic than la Boqueria but sorry for me just didn’t have the atmosphere more »
An amazing place to stop in for any type of snack or grocery. On vacation from California, enjoyed sampling a bunch of different foods. The food is fresh, the vendors are friendly, and the atmosphere is lovely. I would have liked to have tried on of the bars near the sides or the location. Very cool social atmosphere.
Most shops were closed on holiday. You won't find the touristy shops you get in Boqueria, they have mostly high quality produce in the shops. I bought some great spices in one of the shop. The roof is also amazing. Five stars if most shops were open!
