Barcelona with kids

Recommended Posts

We are heading to Barcelona in February and can use some recommendations. We are traveling with a 7, 9, and 15 month old.

 

Specifically, I need simple places for lunch or places to pickup for a picnic. Dinner out is unlikely as Spanish dinners are too late for our kids. Vegetarian friendly is a plus. 

 

Any suggestions for pastries? They are an easy snack for the kids.

 

Thanks!

 

Dan

I haven't been to Barcelona in years, but back then, there was a fantastic store selling small producer jamon iberica de bellota called Jamonissimo.  They had hams from the 4 different regions so you could taste the differences, and had some presliced and packed in a vacuum pack to take with you.  Good for picnics.

I think Jamonisimo closed a few years ago.

 

Depending on where you''re staying (Barcelona is a big city), but we really liked the Mercat de la Concepcio. Easy enough to pick up great stuff for a picnic. And I'm sure you can do the same at any of the neighborhood mercados.

I think you're right - some friends were going there a few years ago and I was looking for it for them, but all the info I could find was about stores that closed... Too bad, that place was a gem.  But I do like your idea of the smaller neighborhood mercados... very easy to find good picnic stuff there...
