This 'market of markets' has become an unmissable event on Barcelona's calendar for lovers of good food and drink, featuring three days of the best that the city's many fresh food markets have to offer. Anyone who's been in Barcelona for more than about a day knows full well that its food markets (of which there are an impressive 39), are a joy to behold. From the smallest neighbourhood establishments to the world-famous Boqueria, the products on sale are varied, colourful and endlessly enticing. Fish, meat, fruit and vegetables, eggs of all sizes, pre-cooked legumes, dried fruits… and all served by really knowledgeable stallholders. Visit the Mercat de Mercats to try tapas, buy fresh, healthy food, and see some of the best chefs in the city and from around Catalonia show off their know-how and the traditions of local cooking. If you're so inclined, there are also wine, cava, vermouth, coffee and even olive oil tastings, among numerous other such activities.

"Lovers of fine food and drink shouldn't miss out on the opportunity to discover all kinds of food at some of Barcelona's 39 markets. Everything from creative tapas to traditional dishes."
