What's very localWhat's very local

For food lovers, you will obviously have to stock up on local specialities. In addition to Iberian ham, don't forget to bring back some Catalan cold cuts: botifarra (large sausage), fuet (dry sausage), llonganissa (sausage)... In the city markets, most traders will be able to vacuum-pack your purchases.

In the wine cellars you can buy olive oil, Catalan wines (D.O. Penedès, Priorat, Montsant...) and cava.

In the Eixample you will find many queviures. These are small modernist grocery stores where you can find the canned products that the Spanish love: squid in ink, boquerones (pickled anchovies), almejas (clams), etc. It's cheap, easy to transport, can be kept for years and is a great idea for a gift for your friends and family!

Tourist trapsTourist traps

Beware of street vendors and illegal vendors (manteros) who sell their wares in the tourist areas of the city. These migrant vendors sell cheap bags, sports shoes and other accessories to tourists. This practice is illegal and all their products are counterfeit!
