Palo Alto is pretty much hipster heaven. A fashion, design & food market, it opened in 2014 and quickly became a city staple.
The market is held one weekend a month, during which it fills up with food trucks and market stalls selling everything design: from clothing to handbags, sunglasses, home decorations and even furniture. You can find quite a few hand-made brands in Barcelona, which is a welcome difference if you’re looking to find something local and unique. There’s also a huge variety of food options: a ceviche stand, food trucks selling everything from gourmet burgers to paella, and a Moritz beer bar (one of the city’s local beers).
What I love most about Palo Alto Market without a doubt is its location, it’s set in a beautiful renovated factory dating back to the late 19th century with many open air spaces and gardens, a bit of an oasis in the Poblenou district.
Little tip: If you buy the entrance ticket online it’s €3, instead of €4.
I always enjoy my visits. I hope you will too!
