MERCAT DE MERCATS and BODY LIFE FITNESS FAIR 2013
MERCAT DE MERCATS
If you are a gastronomy enthusiast, if you enjoy Catalan and Mediterranean food and if you love outdoor events – then we have something for you. Actually, if you love outdoor events in the Gothic and Born neighborhoods and its unique atmosphere, – its an even better combination, don’t you think?
This year is the 4th Edition of the Festival Mercat de Marcats. It takes place from Friday the 18th until Sunday. The opening hours are from 12:00 to 20:00 on Friday and from 11.00 to 20:00 on the weekend. As mentioned the festival will take place in the Gothic and Born neighborhood – more precisely around the areas of Av. Cathedral and Santa Catarina Market. You will find more than 30 stalls by many local producers. The festival will also feature numerous bars and restaurants. There will be a cava and wine area where you can enjoy some tasting sessions. There will also be various workshops about wines, cheeses and cavas, and the organizers also thought of the little ones, so there will be some activities suitable for kids.
There is no entrance fee, but if you want to taste some of the tapas or drinks you will have several options. There are different type of tickets – for example 4 tapas for 4 Euros, 4 drinks (wine or cava) for 10 Euros, a single tapa for 4 Euros, 2 drinks (water, “refresco” or beer) for 3 euros.
We hope we managed to distract you shortly from the Tuesday and brought you closer to the coming weekend. See you at Mercat de Mercats!
