La Nau Bostik
La Nau Bostik is unique in that it’s not in the city center, but in the authentic, residential neighborhood of La Sagrera. It’s not a market itself, but rather a creative space that hosts a number of weekend markets in Barcelona. Most weekends, you can stop by La Nau Bostik to find food trucks, bars, music, and vintage goods. The themes of the market vary, as some weekends you’ll find solely vintage items, other weekends new and secondhand. Whatever market is taking place at La Nau Bostik, though, you’re sure to find something you like!
Address: Carrer Ferran Turné, 11
El Flea is a monthly flea market that is organized by those that also run Fleadonia. This market is held near the Drassanes metro stop and is known for its great vibes and market finds. This market is fun not only to look through the items, but for people-watching, too! The market’s prime location in the heart of the city means that it’s easy to find and stop by. See what treasures you can find at El Flea!
