Flea Markets


Barcelona is famous for its high-end shopping streets such as Portal de l’Angel and Passeig de Gracia and its shopping centres. However, with more and more people trying to reduce their carbon footprint and looking to a more sustainable future, second-hand shopping has not only become more popular but also more fashionable. Although sifting through items makes for a more timely shopping experience, if you have the patience you can find a range of interesting items at a fraction of their original price. Barcelona Connect explores some of Barcelona’s best flea markets…


Barcelona Flea Market (Els Encants Vells).

Situated in Plaza Glories it is Barcelona’s oldest and biggest flea market. It dates back to the fourteenth century and you can find anything there, from plants to power tools, both second-hand and new. Although it opens until 20:00 it is best to get there early as many of the stalls pack-up at around midday and this will also increase you chances of finding a bargain. Saturday is the busiest day so if you want to avoid large crowds it is wise to go on Monday, Wednesday or Friday. Negotiation is expected at this huge, open-air, chaotic market and it’s also fun so don’t just accept the first price you hear…haggle!

When: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday 9:00 – 20:00

Where: 69 Avinguda Meridiana

Nearest Metro: Glories
