La Boqueria market

The most famous food
 market in Barcelona is La Boqueria on the famous street Las Ramblas in the gothic area. Although it is a very popular tourist attraction it still retains plenty of authenticity and charm. At La Boqueria things are still done the way they always have been and for visitors it's a colourful bonanza of exotic fruits, vegetables, fish and meat as well as a couple of fantastic tapas bars.  Another popular market is Sant Antoni which local Barcelona residents claim is even livelier, fresher, and much more authentic than La Boqueria with clothes stalls and a book and coin market on Sundays, but at the moment it is undergoing a major renovation and have moved into temporary premises nearby. 

Santa Catarina market


Many markets in Barcelona are looking for new ways to breathe new life into old markets, and a good example can be found in the Born / Ribera area of Barcelona's old city at the Santa Catarina market which has kept three facades of the original structure but otherwise reemerged after a seven year renovation with a new and modern market concept that includes over a hundred market stalls and one of Barcelona's best lunch restaurants called Cuines Santa Caterina under the flamboyant roof designed by Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue.
