Barcelona markets have played an essential role in the history and growth of the active population of the city. Many of these markets have more than one hundred years of history. However, they have been modernized, concerning both performance and quality of service. This modernization and remodeling has been carried out, in most cases, preserving the original architecture. Thus, it is possible to admire these unique historical buildings while enjoying a service adapted to the 21st century.

Some of these buildings are of Art Nouveau architecture, such as El Mercat de Sants, El Mercat Nou or El Merc at de Sarrià. . The most popular are EL Mercat de Santa Caterina, El Mercat de la Concepció or the famous Mercat de la Boqueria, located in the popular Rambla de Barcelona, which attracts locals and tourists with a colorful range of food and drink  products of unparalleled quality.

Each market has its own history and its own unique charm, and all offer quality products, many of them local or organic. Their lively and crowded atmosphere, the wonderful choices of food and drink and the possibility of dealing directly with the traders (including bargaining) give color and soul to an experience that no visitor to the city should miss.
