Why buy new products when you can reuse other people’s stuff? In real Barcelona, we love recycling and reusing, not only because we care about the environment but also because we love vintage!

That’s why in real Barcelona (the non-touristic one) second hand and flea markets are becoming more and more popular. And October is a quite busy month for flea markets and second hand markets in Barcelona. Here’s a list of some of the best:
