The origins of Mercat del Clot go back to the 19th century, when the neighbourhood belonged to the separate town of Sant Martí de Provençals and had an open-air market to which local farmers brought their produce.
By the end of the 19th century, the growth in the local population meant that a permanent covered market was necessary and in 1889, the fine structure built by Pere Falqués i Urpí opened to the public.
Made out of brick and supported on an iron frame, this striking building is pre-Modernista and almost like a church, the inside, where the stalls are located, is divided into three sections.
Over the years Clot Market has undergone a number of restorations, principally in 1964, 1969 and the most recent and important one in 1995.
Today, the Mercat del Clot is one of the most emblematic Barcelona markets and a focus for the local community as it offers plenty of activities, such as cooking courses and occasional exhibitions, as well as participating actively in festivals and celebrations.
As well as the typical offer of meat, poultry, fish, fruit and vegetables and frozen foods, Clot Market has a bar and stalls selling non-food items outside the main building.
It offers free parking to customers, home delivery and some stalls offer an online service and there is also a Super Estalvi supermarket.
