Established just a decade ago in 2007, Flea Market BCN grows in strength year by year. The organizers have a passion for sustainability, re-using junk and not letting things go to waste. Their philosophy is ‘one man’s garbage is another man’s gold’.
Flea Market BCN is actually made up of two vintage shopping events. These are Fleadonia and El Flea. They take place in different locations and are set up slightly differently. Both events are a fantastic source for authentic antique wares, curiosities, memorabilia and quirky trinkets. El Flea and Fleadonia are firm favourites amongst locals and tourists.
These flea markets are popular events where individuals can sell and exchange their second hand products easily and in a great atmosphere. If you are looking for stylish second-hand clothes, authentic tribal wear and vintage accessories, you will find it at these Catalonian markets. Customers can browse stalls selling beautifully hand-painted tapas dishes, wine glasses, old-fashioned wall clocks and colorful crockery.
Don’t forget to try out the traditional Spanish delicacies too, such as Paella, Calamari and Patatas bravas. Wash it down with a glass of Sangria or Tinto De Verano. Barcelona is an incredibly old city with a lot of historical buildings and monuments. If you search its flea markets for old knick knacks, you will surely find an object that, if it could talk, would have a lot to tell you.

Antiquing Tip Of The Day
Don’t be intimidated to negotiate with vendors when appropriate, but be kind. A good rule of thumb is to ask for a discount of 15-20 percent and hope to land at 10 percent off.
