Slow food: Temporary market provides urban escape

23.02.2010 Food : Planning : Housing

Madrid – A temporary market has been created in an urban development area in the Spanish capital.

Alongside a new shopping centre, sports centre and car parks, the Barceló market, developed by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos is as an urban facility that offers fresh ingredients such as chorizo and paella. The market is divided up in to six pentagon-shaped floor areas, each housing stalls and outlets.

Once the construction work on the development surrounding Barceló market has been completed, the market will be removed and recycled – or shifted to an alternative location in Madrid. Consumers in urban environments are increasingly seeking fresh food and ingredients; read more about this in our recent Insight News piece.
