Take the everyday scene from the barrio markets and then imagine the stalls here piled high with a stunning variety of cured meats, bakery, cheeses, herbs and honeys. For those wishing to improve their cooking skills, the gastronomy classroom Aulà Gastrònomica will return with demonstrations from some great contemporary chefs from the regional culinary scene. Previous years have seen market stallholders rub shoulders with chefs from elBulli and Japanese restaurant Icho.
Of course it’s the tasting sessions that are the runaway success, attracting thousands of visitors every year. Purchase tickets for food and/or wine and use them to sample tapas-size dishes coming out of the kitchens of some of the city’s finest and most innovative restaurants; or taste wines coming from the best regional vineyards and cellars.
Prices: €4 (1 tapa) / €14 (4 tapas) / €3 (wine or cava) / €2 (beer)
