THE MARKET TOUR at “Mercado del Ninot” (“Doll Market” in English).

The Market tour is a fun and interactive way of exploring Barcelona central market while also meeting each other.

Our chef will show you the market located on the Left Eixample Quarter of Barcelona.

Ninot Market by Gratis in Barcelona


It received this name from a very popular tavern that sold a good wine at a very cheap price because it was located outside the Barcelona city walls and did not have to pay the access fees to Barcelona.

The daughter of the tavern, on a visit to Barcelona, ​​saw how a boat caught fire, and asked her boyfriend, save the doll that was in the bow of this boat. The brave boyfriend obviously saved the doll and placed it on the facade of the popular tavern….

That’s how this area was started to be called “the Ninot” and later it spread the name to the Market.
