The real expression of the portcommercial lively nature of the city reaches the top in the markets: 39 indoor markets, plus 4 outdoor ones represent the real beating heart of Barcelona’s gastronomy.Markets are not only powerful engines of urban economy and places of local trade, employment and business; they also play a pivotal role in social aggregation and cultural promotion thus contributing to processes of urban renewal. Aware of this, in 1991 the Ajuntament de Barcelona established an independent institution for the direct management and administration of Barcelona markets, the IMMB (Institut Municipal de Mercats de Barcelona). The IMMB is also in charge of the modernization of markets through improvement of infrastructures and personal services, upgrade of the trading offer based on consumers’ requests and promotion of markets as bonding poles and cultural development.
