This is the new Sant Antoni: the most modern market in BCN
The new Eixample market returns after almost nine years
From October 10, 2009 to May 23, 2018. It has taken almost nine years for the Sant Antoni market to open its doors again, splendid, recovering the original appearance, which the architect Antoni Rovira i Trias drew It opened in 1882 to be sold basically cod, chickens and chicken derivatives. Today the market, as it happened in the nineteenth century, remains the nerve center of the neighborhood, and also a luxury entrance to the Ciutat Vella where everything started, but now in a Barcelona that has nothing to do with that humble Mediterranean village . Cosmopolitan and globalized, the Catalan capital takes on the challenge of getting this building to maintain the use for which it was delivered: to acquire fresh produce, but also clothing, accessories, buttons, threads, and on Sundays, books, lots of books, and postcards , records, movies and old documents. Three markets in one that return without ever leaving.
