  • If you want to see the scenery that the local people shop, the market of this place is recommended for lunch because there are several bars along with the egg shop, the butcher shop, the fish shop, and the greengrocer, too. I'm not garbage like the Boqueria market, the price is also cheap, but i think that someday it will become a tourist market here, but i'm also a tourist, so I'm contradictory.

  • I was with my family in the market that is not as touristy as the Boqueria, but I particularly found it much nicer mainly because it is more empty and consequently more organized. There are several stores of seafood, fruits, Taperias and 02 restaurants (lunch at the first right of the entrance). In the restaurant there is the menu with entrance, main course, dessert and drink for 12 euros. I had black rice with seafood entry, cod as main course, mató cheese with dessert honey and beer, all very good. Excellent value for money.
