La Concepció is particularly well known for its flower market, located at the back. Here you’ll find all types of flowers and greenery, ideal for anyone with gardening ambitions. Entering the market is an unusual experience. The space opens up in front of you like a large warehouse; to your right an appliances shop, to your left and below you, a supermarket. Yep, that’s right, below you. In fact, to get to the market stalls you must walk across a bridge suspended over the supermarket – quite the grand entrance. The market itself comprises of a fantastic range of fruit, veg, meat and wine stalls. The fresh fruit and mixed juices are particularly delicious.
Tip: Get a bite at the Forn Pastisseria L’Eixample. Originating in 1910, this bakery sells beautiful sweet and savoury pastries. Alternatively, swing by one of the fruit stalls for freshly cut fruit if you’re looking for a healthier option.
