Palo Alto Market is an event that was created by a group of young professionals who work at Fundación Palo Alto, a space with different creative studios inside what used to be an old factory in the Poblenou area. Thanks to them, today we can enjoy this amazing street market, mixed with trendy design, gourmet food, workshops, and live music, on the first weekend of each month usually.

The cost to access to these beautiful gardens is 4€ and it will be the perfect chance to discover Barcelona’s designer community and for taste street food in an exceptional setting. Your perfect weekend spot to fin unique clothes, accessories and homewares, and to taste specialties from around the world at one of the many food trucks!

This is one of the most charming and historic markets in Barcelona and one of our favourite: “Dominical de Sant Antoni” or Sant Antoni Sunday Market. If you’re a second-hand books, comics, postcards and newspapers eager, then be sure to visit this Sunday market (every Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) and you will be able to find old and antique material.

The market is has been under renovation for the last years, so once it reopened again and more classy than ever, all the locals and visitors have made of it a trend for a Sunday morning. Don’t forget to visit the inside market where you will find fresh fruit, nice fish and meat and local clothes and jewelry, among others.

Our next market is a recent addition to the second-hand market scene in Barcelona and traders here tend to specialize in vintage fashion and accessories, although you will be able to find also books, interior décor items, old records, and much more!
Although this market does not have so many editions (usually 2 a year) it is one of the largest second-hand market in Barcelona. Depending on the edition, Lost & Found is either organized outside by the Moll de la Fusta near the Barceloneta, or inside the Estación de Françia.
To sum up, more than a market, Lost and Found is a creative space for all locals and visitors to enjoy.

Last but not least, we can’t finish without talking about Els Encants. This is one of Europe’s oldest flea markets, dating back to the 14th Century, and an excellent example of Barcelona’s commercial flair. It mostly sells decorative objects and furniture, and a few clothes stalls.

In 2008, the City of Barcelona decided to create a new roof structure to cover this great market, without depriving it of its open-air feel. A new structure was created by the architect Fermín Vázquez, and today we can say is one of Barcelona’s most striking examples of contemporary architecture.

The market now covers a surface of over 15,000 m2, with over 500 sellers. But there are also different stands to eat and even underground parking.
