Discover the Barceloneta Market, Saint Catherine’s and the famous Boqueria
If you are here, this is because you think gastronomy is a very important part of a culture, hence of a trip.
Welcome to our Barcelona Food Tour: discover the City Markets!
In a market, you can learn how people talk, how people eat, even how people dress!! You will be able to interact with locals. Visiting a market will allow you to live and share the everyday life. In a market, life pass by. Food is the centre of our culture (or at least an important part)
In this Barcelona Food Tour, you will:
- Visit three markets in Barcelona, including the famous Boqueria Market
- Discover local gastronomy in three different local run venues close to these markets (one of them is over 88 years old!)
- Taste different specialities, you will get to know why they are popular, their history. We will talk about cooking, about recipes.

The Markets Tour – step by step
Thanks to this Barcelona Food Tour you will become an expert in Catalan food and have your taste buds dancing because we will stop for some tapas during this fascinating tour to the core (or the stomach) of the barcelonians. Be a part of the culture, atmosphere and history of Barcelona.
You will start this Barcelona Food Tour walking along the Barceloneta area to discover a hidden gem, its market. Its noisy atmosphere will help you to realise how dynamic the area is. This is where we will stop for the first discovery of the day: vermut? Local Beer? Pinchos? That would be up to you with your local guide’s help.
Afterwards, you will be amazed by the design of the Saint Catherine market. Located close to the trendy Ribera Area it has become one of the must see in the city. This is the area where you will taste some popular platillos (those are to share, like tapas but usually more sophisticated) in a picturesque Bodega.
We will end this wonderful Barcelona Food Tour visiting La Boqueria market, the biggest food market in the city and spite being the most popular, it still has some hidden gems to show. An old family run Charcuteria will be the last stop of this tour.

Is the food included in the price?
Yes. The prices change according to the number of people in your party. We prefer to include food this way you know the final price. However, drinks and food won’t be ordered beforehand. Once you arrive to each venue, the guide will give you the options you have to choose what fits better your taste. One advice: be adventurous! We’re sure you’ll make amazing discoveries.
How do you select the venues to stop?
Eating and drinking! We go there, we eat, we drink, and (very important) we pay. And if we love it, we take travellers like you. Besides, we do not take any commission to take you there.
Which is the best hour to have this Barcelona Markets Tour?
We would say this is a lunch tour. The itinerary has been designed to visit three markets which open in the morning. However, if we start very early, there wouldn’t be any vibrant atmosphere! This is the reason why we propose to start at 11 am to finish at 3 pm.
Are you on a cruise-ship?
In this case, the meeting point would be at the Pier. The guide will wait for you at the exit of the ship holding a sign with your name on it. In order to make the most of the tour, you will reach the starting point by taxi.

Anna was great! She was informative without being boring, catered to our specific sight-seeing requests, and kept us fully enlightened and entertained. How this woman has so much knowledge, I don’t know! She literally had the answer to every single question we had. We stopped for a coffee mid-way as she could sense we were getting tired from walking and I enjoyed chatting to her socially. I 100% recommend her for anyone going to Barcelona!
We engaged Anna for a 3 days private tour in Barcelona. She is very dedicated and knowledgeable on every places of interest in Barcelona. When my child wasn’t feeling too well during the trip, she was flexible and accommodative to our last minute changes and requests. My family truly enjoyed our trip in Barcelona and had a wonderful time spent with Anna. If you are looking for customized private tour, Anna will be the best person to engage!!
We concur with all the previous wonderful reviews of Anna and her team. We ended up having three tours with Anna and each one was different, informative and superb. If you would prefer to soak in the city and keep your nose out of the guide books and maps contact Barcelonina. Our trip to Spain had been derailed but once we contacted Jordi, everything started to improve. These folks have it together, make great suggestions on what to do and are patient with letting you make up your mind. Barcelona would not have been nearly as fascinating without them.
