10 Jan The best second-hand street markets markets in Barcelona
The so called “hard January” is complicated for everyone, that’s why we suggest a plan to visit the best second-hand markets in Barcelona.
They are full of walkers, who enjoy the atmosphere and their bargain shopping.
Do you want to be one of them?
Sant Antoni Sunday Market
This is one of the most charming and historic markets in Barcelona. It is held every Sunday (from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) near the Sant Antoni Market.
This is one of the few flea markets in Barcelona, since in addition to being able to buy countless items, both new and second-hand, we can also bring our own items to be priced and sold at some street stand.
We find a great variety of articles related to leisure, culture and colectionism; cinema, music, books, sticker albums, video games, philately and numismatics and minerals.
It is a very busy market, so we recommend you go early to enjoy and walk calmly.
On the garage
This is a second-hand market under the concept of Garage Sales, where people bring everything they have left over from home to sell or trade. It takes place in the Ovella Negra Poblenou, Carrer Zamora, 78. It is held every third weekend of the month from 11:00 to 20:00 and admission is free.
They invite us to empty the wardrobe and with it they give life to a market with more than 100 exhibitors where you can find objects, second-hand clothes, some vintage rarity, non-professional craftsmanship, furniture…
The Two Markets is another of the most visited and active markets in Barcelona. Every second Sunday of the month from 11.00 to 20.00 this second hand flea market is held at the RaiArt facilities, Carrer dels Carders, 12.
The participants are not professionals and each one brings objects from home that, for whatever reason, are no longer used. This market is one of the most active in Barcelona and exists since 2010.
You can find everything you can imagine for one euro or less: clothes, shoes, decoration, kitchen utensils, electronics, household details and much more.
If you bet on savings and second-hand products, practice the philosophy of recycling and reuse and want to revive the spirit that had the Encants of yesteryear, visit Two Market, you’ll love it.
Demanoenmano: the social market
It is an itinerant market, which is held monthly in different locations of Barcelona. It consists of a single day, and free access.
Divided into two sections, a first one dedicated to recycling, second hand and vintage, and a second one for new creations by artisans, designers, illustrators… also open to the presentation and promotion of activities, organisations, services, or any emerging proposal that wants to be known.
Demanoenmano is also presented as a day of leisure, a good Sunday plan, completing its program with creative workshops, children’s activities, and music with DJs and live groups.
Lost & Found
For those who find it difficult to be in places full of buyers, we certainly recommend Lost & Found, quieter and more structured, compared to the previous ones.
It was born with the desire to offer a space for interaction, dialogue and popularity in which to develop a playful and sustainable form of commerce based on the purchase, direct sale and the possibility of exchange.
Although it does not have so many editions, usually two a year, it is one of the largest in Barcelona.
The Flea Market Barcelona is a monthly market where people sell and exchange second-hand products, such as clothes, accessories, books and music in good condition at reasonable prices.
They offer sellers the chance to get something in exchange for something they don’t need anymore, while buyers can take an original item for a fraction of the price of buying it new.
Every second Sunday of the month in Plaça de Blanquerna (behind the Maritime Museum), metro Drassanes (L3), very close to the Hotal Arc la Rambla.
Ask our reception staff at the hotel about any of the second-hand markets in Barcelona and they will be happy to provide you with all the information you need to enjoy them.
