Market of Les Corts

The construction in 1961 of a covered market in an old area previously occupied by fields, close to the old centre of the neighbourhood of Les Corts, provided a new meeting point and shopping area for locals. Completely remodelled in 2007, the Market of Les Corts has changed a lot on the outside, but the quality of the products and the friendly and affable manner of the traders remain the same.

The evolution of a market

The Market of Les Corts was built in 1961 in an area that was previously occupied by vegetable gardens. It was initially built to supply the people of the neighbourhood with fresh food at a time of major expansion in the neighbourhood of Les Corts. The structure took the form of the typical arch-roofed buildings of the period. It gradually became an essential part of the neighbourhood as it continued to grow. The market was remodelled In 1993 to help it adapt to the new commercial demands and the increase in the number of customers.

However, the ongoing modernization of the city and the neighbourhood of Les Corts resulted in the Municipal Institute of Markets deciding to remodel it once again in 2008. This time it underwent a complete reform managed by the company G56.

Present and future

The initiative opted for a radical transformation of the façade, that opens onto Travessera de les Corts, and the construction of an entrance at street level and a ramp designed to break the architectural barriers, making it accessible to all.

The stalls were also refurbished but they managed to keep the cheerful spirit that have been their hallmark since their beginnings as well as their essential purpose: that of offering top quality food. In recent years, the classical range of products on offer has been supplemented by several new proposals, and we can now find stalls that offer biological products and goods for gourmets.
