    Mercat de Sant Antoni

    This market complex sells fresh produce as well as clothes, fabrics and accessories, all under one roof. On Sundays you can browse the outdoor second-hand book market. The Mercat de Sant Antoni was designed by Antoni Rovira i Trias – who also designed the Mercat de la Concepció – as part of the city's expansion plan, the Pla Cerdà, and it opened in 1882. It was the first market built outside the city walls because the Boqueria, the Born and Santa Caterina couldn't keep up with the demand for food in the late 19th century. A major refurbishment project began in 2007 and major archaeological finds were uncovered that have now been incorporated into the structure.
