    Where Are The Best Food Markets In The World?

    Where Are The Best Food Markets In The World?

    Canadian-based hotelier Fairmont Hotels and Resorts operates properties in 19 countries around the world, so they have a pretty good knowledge of when something is among the world’s best. Now they've combined that boots-on-the-ground expertise with the vast knowledge of city experts around the world and compiled, “The Foodies Favorite Food Markets of the World” infographic which brings a fun and quick reference guide for people looking to get out and sample some of the best cuisine and provisions these cities have to offer.

    In the graphic, Fairmont puts together selections from Montreal, London, Barcelona, Singapore, New York, Toronto and Dubai. Each city gets two destinations, with a quick-hit section about the market, how many stalls, must try foods while you are there, types of food and beverage you will find, hours of operation and a cool little random fact about each place. 

    Whether you are looking for cheese in New York City's Chelsea market or meat in Barcelona's Mercat de Galvany, this guide will tell you exactly what to find when you get there. Bookmark the page on your Smartphone and consider yourself in the know.
