Shop for everything old, antique and secondhand at Barcelona’s largest flea market. Once a collection of ramshackle stands, Els Encants moved into a modern mirrored structure in 2013 where vendors sell everything from home items and clothes to musical instruments and antiques.

Come for auctions Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 8am to 9:00am or try your luck at negotiating a deal on your own schedule. It is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 9:00am to 8:00pm for non-auction shopping.

Encants Vells Flea Market

A longtime favorite with Barcelona vintage and bargain shoppers, Encants Vells is one of Europe’s oldest flea markets, dating from the 14th century. Recently it moved a few blocks away from its historic location to a shiny new modern market packed to the brim with secondhand CDs, DVDs, toys, antiques, clothes, shoes, and books, as always. Open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
