Without it’s impressive network of markets, Barcelona would taste quite differently.
Markets have been the heart, soul and life-blood of cities ever since they exist. Terms such as “urban market” or “farmer’s market” indicate that this once indispensable institution is experiencing a comeback after being substituted by the all-in-one bore me to death malls in many (mostly western-style) cities around the world.
But luckily this is not the case for Barcelona. The Catalan are as gourmet as you can get and will elevate you to taste heaven. Without the impressive network of “mercats”, offering freshness and quality throughout Barcelona, this wouldn’t be possible. Enjoy while you can.
