STREET MARKETS WORTH A VISIT IN BARCELONA, SPAIN
When it comes to finding objects, clothing, antiques, collectibles and little treasures you have been looking for maybe for ages, street markets seem to be the perfect place to go; and as you might expect, colourful and open Barcelona has some of its own. While you will surely find the typical Sunday street market in every neighbourhood each week, there are a few others which have grown and earned a well deserved good fame in recent years.
SUNDAY STREET MARKETS IN BARCELONA AND VICINITY
One of the most regular and popular ones is Sant Antoni Sunday Market, which normally remains open from early in the morning until well past lunchtime, and offers second hand items, antiques and collectibles. Many locals and foreigners visit it to buy comics, books, vintage clothing and old magazines. When they finish, the Street Market in Plaça Reial –next to the Ramblas-, is awaiting them with stamps and coins that our grandparents used when still young.
If you feel like visiting the surroundings of Barcelona, you can take a train to Sabadell at Barcelona Sants station any Sunday; the journey lasts no more than thirty minutes, and you will have the chance to browse around eighty stalls full of antiques and magic, installed around Sabadell’s Central Market.
THE MOST FAMOUS SECOND HAND MARKETS IN BARCELONA CITY
In the city centre, however, second hand street markets have become a trend among Barcelona citizens, and they are almost considered social events: both small retailers and private individuals take part, and music, food and networking are always present. Flea Market, Demanoenmano and Lost&Found Market are worth highlighting, even though we could also cite some others. They are organised periodically (not on a weekly basis) and may change their location every time, a fact that –without a doubt- generates great expectation.
