The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

Fantastic market
Mar 2020 • Couples
Recently had a few days in Barcelona, thankfully left before lockdown. After a bit of research located this market, very few tourists mainly locals.
Clean friendly place.
Visited various places to eat all excellent for different reasons, I always try order in the local language and had a fantastic reaction to speaking Catalan, this I found to really help through out the trip.
We would totally recommend to visit.

Very local market place
Jan 2020
Not nearly as busy nor as well stocked with flashy tourist stuff as La Boquitiera on the Rhamblas but it is a very good market if you are staying in the area and wish to cook in your apartment. There are a few restaurants in the market that are worthwhile.

Amazing Lunch at the chicken place
Dec 2019 • Friends
Perfect place to switch off from Ramblas and all touristic junk. There is a nice chicken place inside (roughly in the middle of the market) with a wide variety of chicken burgers. The chef cooks in front of you whilst having friendly conversations. The burger was delicious, fries were ace! Nice beer and a VERY cheap bill. You stuff up with less than 10euros. I had to come back the day after!

Loved that the modern and traditional market are on one roof.

We went here together with our chef guide when we took a cooking class in Barcelona.
I will definitely go back here when I visit Barcelona again.

Stock up with the locals ...
Nov 2019
Olives jarred or canned, ham in vac packs, sweets, and olive oil (all sorts of other meats and an ocean full of fish) for those who want to shop not take part in the tourist spectacle of Mercat de Bouqueria ... have comfort.
If you can’t find it ... go downstairs to Mercadona a huge supermarket with everything imaginable.
Q-Trip: Super restaurant Jobs is just across the street.

Really good food, I like seafood and I recommend that place. Always fresh and cheap. But so busy for all day.

A not-yet-on-the-tourist-radar market!
Sep 2019
Beautifull seafood and vegetables everywhere, and prepared foods as well. Try Perralla's, where Guadaloupe will serve you a cold beer and many different small plates of seafood.. Medusa has good seafood for lunching in, too. If you tire of this, or want a restaurant, just go across the street to Porvenir, a very good local seafood restaurant that seems always lively with Spanish customers.

Great alternative to la Boqueria
Aug 2019 • Couples
If you find la Boqueria a bit intense and also busy maybe also expensive then this place newly refurbished maybe for you an excellent market with few tourists and a great range of meat, seafood and fruit and veg plus some nice places to eat. Sure it doesn’t have the bustle but it is where the locals actually do shop and it’s much safer from pickpockets etc. Not to knock la Boqueria it’s really up to you . Easy to find and in a less touristy area of the city but very safe

A real Spanish market you must visit
Sep 2019 • Couples
We had tried Mercat La Boqueria which we found too full of tourists, very busy and very overpriced. The Mercaders Del Nino however is the opposite, a relaxed space which was easy to browse with a beautiful range of fresh produce. All of the produce was amazing and not over priced, the seafood in particular the Galician Oysters we delicious - you could taste the ocean! We saw plenty of locals both shopping and dining. Highly recommended.

A hidden gem
Aug 2019 • Family
When one visits Barcelona and is looking to experience a market, La Bouqueria tops the list. However if you are not there early, the crowds can be quite overwhelming.

Just around the corner from our hotel, on our way to the Hospital Clinic Metro, we stumbled across Mercado del Ninot. What a pleasant surprise. It’s where residents go for quality groceries. I think we were the only tourists in there. When you look at the photos you will see for yourself just how clean, spacious, and abundant it is for visitors. They had an egg booth, several butchers, seafood, fruits, vegetables, and of course eateries to have lunch. Our teenage girls are quite picky but we found a butcher who offered meats which you can then cook in their kitchen in the back room. It was like buying groceries but rather than bringing them home they were cooked on the spot. Girls had fried breaded chicken cutlets, French fries, and salad. Added two bottles of water for less than €18. We regret finding this spot on our last day but we visit Barcelona often and will be sure to visit once again.

Not sure if TA reviewers will see or experience this place as its so far down the list of “things to do”. It’s definitely worth visiting for lunch - enjoy!
