Palo Alto market is the new trend on street markets in Barcelona that combines the vibe of the street with the artsy and creative Barcelona. One of the things that I like the most about the market apart from the content and style is the location. Palo alto is actually the name of a block where there are 19 artistic studios located in an old factory from XIX century that is overlooking a garden.
