Barcelona's markets

Few cities in the world have such a rich and varied network of markets as Barcelona. There are 39 of them selling fresh food and four specialising in non-food products that are the perfect complement to this unique and distinctive offering. The city's food markets supply us with fresh, organic and locally sourced produce brought in daily from the farms and fish markets in the neighbouring counties. Some of the stalls now display the “Comerç Verd”, or green commerce, sign, to show they sell this type of product. Barcelona's markets are a unique part of the city's heritage in every sense: their architecture and design, their history, the variety of the products on offer and their role as hubs of community life in every neighbourhood make them iconic places you simply have to visit. Wander between the different stalls, be entranced by the aromas and colours, and stop for a drink and a bite to eat at their restaurants and bars which serve up dishes made with the produce from the market. Our markets' ability to supply fresh, carbon-neutral and seasonal produce is certainly one of the factors that have contributed to Barcelona being named World Sustainable Food Capital 2021. Come and visit them and enjoy an experience that encapsulates the spirit of the city!
