Mercat del Ninot (Markets)

Mercat del Ninot

Mercat del Ninot or Ninot Market in English (which literally means Doll's Market), can be found in the south of Eixample Esquerre district, meaning it's relatively close to the city centre of Barcelona as far as residential markets are concerned. The most curious fact about this building is its name, which comes from when it was a tavern whose owners rescued a wooden doll (ninot) that was the figurehead for a ship to be dismantled. They returned to their tavern with it and proudly displayed it on the front of the building, and you can still see it today!

Renovation

This market, like many others, has undergone a huge renovation. It took place between 2014 and 2015 and has resulted in a modern market precinct that hasn't lost the original spirit of the building or neighbourhood. The basement is a large storage space and parking for customers.
