SHOPPING > MARKETPLACE

The Marketplace is one of the commercial facilities in Canet de Mar of greatest tradition and history.  Located on one of the shopping streets in the town, la Riera Buscarons, it drives its surroundings and is still the main shopping area for fresh products, vegetables, fruit, fish, meat and chickens, which now account for most of the stalls.  It enhances proximity products and own production and harvesting.

The market has not always been in the same place, but has changed with time and could formerly be found, for example at the Font dels Gossos or at the bottom of carrer Ample, or in Plaça Macià. It was in the early 20th century when a covered market was asked for, but this caused fights between the traders who all wanted to have it nearby.

Finally in 1932, the Republican mayor Josep Fors i Vidal called elections in the town to decide on the matter.  On the 16th of April 1933, the townspeople voted on whether to assume a loan of 250,000 pesetas for the purchase of land to build the municipal market building.  Their answer was affirmative and a great novelty about this vote was that it was the one in which women were allowed to vote for the first time in the Spanish state, some months before the rest of the women in the State, who did so for the general elections.

Plaça Mercat

The project was the responsibility of Pere Domènech i Roura, the son of Ll. Domènech i Montaner, and was built by the company Gamandé of Barcelona, which used a classicist language with Doric pillars and straight lines at the windows.  The marketplace has four identical entrances, one in each facade, three of which have stairs to compensate for the sloping street.  Inside, the structure forms the space.  The roof is held by the walls of the building around it and by a group of central pillars formed by four very elegant angular profiles.
