Mercat de Santa Caterina

Markets / Specialties

Santa Caterina Market was built in the area left by the Church of Santa Caterina after the burning of convents that took place on July 25, 1935. The Town Hall named the market ‘Isabel II’ but citizens ignored it and always referred to it with the same name than the old church. In 1848, it was added an iron roof and a perimeter closure which made it the first covered market in the city. During the post-Civil War period, Santa Caterina became the main food supplier to the towns on the outskirts of Barcelona. People from Sant Adrià, Santa Coloma and Mataró came on the tram to buy food in this market in times of shortage. Today, the market is still worth a visit: the modern exterior ushers us into a traditional market with food stalls and restaurants which serve outstanding-quality produce.
