Garage Sagrada Familia
By Yvonne Mannix
There can be no denying that the popularity of flea markets in Barcelona is soaring, with different events taking place almost every weekend and in locations all over the city. On the Garage, a consistently good event, is normally found at the Ovella Negra beer barn in Poblenou.
However, their April date sees them celebrate spring by hosting a special outdoor event in front of Sagrada Família. As well as the regular stalls selling everything from second-hand vinyl, clothes and accessories to antiques and old video games, they’ll be joined by local neighborhood associations giving information on the services they provide.
There’ll also be children’s entertainment, mini-concerts, vermouth, workshops and free recycling. All activities are free, and unlike some other markets, prices are usually reasonable. Sounds like the perfect cheap day out.
