Shopping fairs on the streets in Horta
The objective is to promote and support commerce as a driving force in the local economy, generating jobs and creating wealth.
There are over 2,000 shops in Horta-Guinardó. This preponderance means that the various trader associations to be found in the district's eleven neighbourhoods play a major role in the community.
In order to showcase the diversity of this commercial activity, the Cor d’Horta i Mercat Trade Federation organise their traditional Trade Fair on a couple of Saturdays in May and June. On these days, shop owners go out into the street and put on a variety of activities for the general public, from children's workshops and concerts to tasting sessions.
Commerce plays a central role in Horta-Guinardó's economic activity. The district's economic structure is fundamentally based on consumerism, specifically small businesses and other consumer services. This economic structure is linked to the district's residential characteristics.
