Barcelona is one of the few cities in the world to have a network of markets distributed in such a way that every neighbourhood has a market. Beyond the contribution they make to the quality of life of citizens as promoters of a healthy balanced diet, Barcelona’s markets are looking towards the future with the introduction of new services to meet the commercial needs of the 21st century. And they also have an eye on the past, as the buildings in which they are housed are a reflection of the history of the city and its people. Btw… “mercat” is Catalan for market :)
