Free to enter this market although I defy you to leave having bought nothing. Amazing array of food fish, hams cheeses and meets alongside the sweets and specialty foods. You can stop to eat in here or you can buy to take away and eat...More

What a great place! A must visit during anyone's stay, just off la Rambla. Really easy to get to and they sell gorgeous food and the colours and the bustle of the market is just incredible

The market was very lively and overall it was a pleasant experience. My family went back almost everyday for the fresh juices! There's lots of choice and the prices for the food and drinks I saw were reasonable.

It's such a great market area because it's so different. It's crowded and can get annoying with people pushing and people haggling but it's fun. Buy yourself some fruit, candy, meat, seafood, or sit down and eat. Take care of your belongings for you get...More

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day

The market is usually busy throughout the day, and closes earlier than the restaurants in the evening. I would say around mid day is a good time.

We were there late afternoon. Given the activity on the Rambla, I doubt the place would close before late evening.
