TheLittle Market of Markets will be held outside the Mercat de Sant Antoni and in the squares in the streets of Tamarit and Comte Borrell, from 11 am to 10 pm.

Stallholders from market stalls selling fish, seafood and meat will be joining market bars to take to the square in C/ Tamarit, offering people tastings of their products. Visitors can buy tapas directly at the stands for a price of 3 to 5 euros and enjoy the tastings offered by different operators. There will also be a space with barbecues, where staff will cook produce that people purchase at the market, enabling them to taste fresh produce purchased from the stalls. Various bars will also be offering beers, aperitifs, wines and other drinks.

The second edition of the Little Market of Markets also includes workshops on making escabeche marinades, kombucha and children’s hamburgers. Other highlights include direct cooking displays headed by renowned chefs such as Paco Pérez (restaurant Miramar, Llançà), Lena Maria Grané and Ricky Smith (restaurant Baló, Barcelona) and Jordi Esteve (restaurant Nectari, Barcelona).

There will also be musical performance and play-based activities for children, including the installation U-Smart Toys, an initiative by Mobile World Capital Barcelona combining architecture, engineering and urban furniture to make smart cities a ludic experience.
