All those seasonal products that have been grown or produced close to where they are finally sold are what we call proximity products or km0 products. Buying and consuming this type of product is increasingly common and normal, as we are increasingly aware that we have to preserve the rural environment, we have to eat healthy and we have to take care of our natural environment trying to produce food with the minimum of gas emissions possible.
That is why in this post we will make a small exhibition of which are the markets of the city of Barcelona that sell local products, to make things much easier for you! In total, there are 7 markets that have opted to be more sustainable spaces and offer healthier products produced in our territory!
Remember that, in addition to these markets that we will mention in this post, there are also others in Barcelona that you cannot miss, since they are historical, such as La Boqueria, El Born Market, the Santa Caterina Market, the Sant Antoni and the Barceloneta Market. It is true that some of these markets also have specific stalls with local products and km0, but in this post we want to talk to you about those that are characterized by making a special emphasis on this issue that is so important for us and for you.
