Best Market in Barcelona

encantsvells21

Mercat Del Encants is THE flea market of Barcelona.
Open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 7 am to mid-afternoon and Saturday being it’s prime day it is the place to go when you are looking for, well, just about anything.

With the fantastic mix of vintage, books, furniture, watches, collector’s stuff, stolen bikes and all kinds of crazy “could-come-in-handy-one-day-goods” this is a place where you could find yourself staying for quite a while, just browsing and browsing and then browsing some more and only for a little bit longer.

If you want to find the real gems, arrive early as some stands also close down quite early or when they are simply out of stuff. The entire thing starts off at 7 in the morning with an auction for all the commercial buyers, who ever thought this went on in Barcelona at this hour. Great place to spend a day eating, browsing and people watching.

  1. Too right! I went here a couple of years ago, and was surprised at the amount of real gems in amongst all the rubbish! We originally only eeded a new lamp, and ended up staying for about 3 hours! Classic!

    Great blog, guys, keep it up.
