A Barcelona Food Market Adventure

tortilla_food-loverJoin us as we eat our way through the market! This adventure is a real culinary experience with a complete immersion in an emblematic Barcelona food market. We enjoy a typical Spanish tapas lunch followed by a delicious and sweet surprise!

No visit to any city or region is truly complete without sampling the local culinary customs. With this in mind, Food Lover Tour® created the Barcelona Local Food Market Tour.

Food lovers of all ages have the opportunity to participate in the local food culture with a visit to an authentic Barcelona food market, sampling gastronomic tapas at five stops, including a wonderful dessert that is sure to leave you with a lasting memory. This midday activity can be scheduled before or after other plans and is suitable for the whole family!

Seeing a Barcelona food market is an essential ingredient to the local culture and its culinary reputation. Filled with life and colour, these Catalan markets supply homes and restaurants with seasonal and fresh produce that form the foundation of its cuisine. The different food stands are often managed by the same families over generations and generations, and these people are genuine experts and a source of knowledge for shoppers.

Holiday closures: Dec 24th, 25th, 31st and Jan 1st

What Our Guests Say

"The food was so good"

We did the market tour and the group consisted of three people. The market was beautiful, clean and very cool. The locals at the market were super friendly and fun. Josh was our guide and he was great! His sense of humour was on point and you can tell he really enjoyed leading this tour. The food was so good and we were so full! Highly recommend this tour!

"Completely fantastic"

What a wonderful way to get to know Spain and its food! We did the 'Market' tour, and it was completely fantastic. Our guide took us through a very local (no other tourists!) marketplace brimming with jamon & cheese, fresh cherries, gorgeous cookies, amazing seafood & wine, and divine tapas!

"Exceeded our expectations"

We make a point of taking a food tour in every city we visit so we've developed very high expectations. Our guide met and exceeded our expectations. The market tour gave us lots of good info about local cuisine and lots to eat and drink as well. It was a casual, friendly walk through a fabulous market. It even pushed me to try things I've never tried.

"Amazing way to experience Spain"

The food we tried was some of the best I've ever tasted. Jamon Iberico, seafood, olives, red wine... all amazing. As we walked to the dessert shop our guide described some history and architecture of local neighborhoods and then we sampled some of the best desserts I've ever tasted. This tour was an amazing way to experience Spain.
