History Barcelona flea market

The new 'Nou Mercat dels Encants' flea market moved across the Plaza Glories square in 2013 to a new location on Av Meridiana with new multi-level buildings and a spectacular new triangular zinc roof.

Els Encants Vells market in Barcelona means the 'old charms fair.' Encants is one of the oldest flea markets in Europe dating back to the 14th century. Until 19th June the market is open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm and the auction is from 7.15pm to 9pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

You can find an eclectic mix of second-hand items and new clothes at Els Encants Vells in Barcelona. For antique hunters, the selection is really not that impressive, but there are some small finds, if you are looking to fill the gaps in your apartment with cheap furniture, knick-knacks and the like. Get their early.
