The best market serving the Eixample Esquerra district is the hundred year-old El Ninot market, found at Calle Mallorca, 135 between Calle Villaroel and Calle Casanova.It is a very traditional market, without the concessions to tourists made by the Boquería, and prides itself on serving the local community and maintaining personal contact with its clients.
Over 175 stalls serve fresh produce of every kind; fruit, vegetables, meat and a large central section dedicated to fish.90 exterior stalls surround the market, selling all sorts of products at low prices, such as clothes, underwear, household items and gifts.There are lots of offers for customers, plus regular lotteries, ensuring that the market remains at the heart of the neighbourhood in an age when impersonal supermarkets are ever encroaching on this traditional, friendly way of shopping.
