Sant Antoni Market

Sant Antoni Market (Mercat de Sant Antoni in Catalan) is one of the largest and busiest markets in Barcelona. It is located between the Eixample and Ciutat Vella District, in the neighborhood of Sant Antoni. It is also known as Antoni Rovira Market after the architect who designed it.

It occupies an area of 5214 square metres and was among the first buildings to be constructed, as shown in the Cerdà Plan. The iron structure of the market has some distinctive Art Noveau motifs. Currently, it is being renovated,however its original external structure will be preserved. Although the market usually offers fruits, vegetables, fish and meat, on Sundays from 8 a.m. till 3 p.m., just outside the building, you can also find comics, coins, old books and other second-hand gems.
