Mercat de la Independència
The Mercat de la Independència is the central market of Terrassa. Traditionally, it has been the most important of the city. It occupies an entire block of houses which are among the streets Raval de Montserrat (where is the main entrance), Rambla d’Ègara and Carrer de la Goleta.
It is one of the most emblematic modernist buildings of Terrassa, work of the municipal architects Antoni Pascual i Carretero and Melcior Vinyals i Muñoz. It was inaugurated on November 14, 1908 and its name commemorates the centennial of the beginning of the Peninsular War, also known as the Spanish war of independence.
The market is characterized by an iron structure, the largest in the city, rather unusual at the time, since at that moment this material was only used as a decorative element. It consists of three naves with shape of a fan and 3,175 square meters.

Mercat Central de Sabadell
The Mercat Central of Sabadell is a building designed by the architect Josep Renom, which began to be built in 1927, on pieces of land that were known as the Camp de la Sang.
The Nou Mercat (New Market) was inaugurated in 1930 and until the end of the 19th century, it was known as the Creu de Mà. The market functioned without interruption until 1999, when they had to carry out a process of restoration of the building. This remodeling allowed to ensure the development of normal commercial activities and market adaptation to current needs.
The Central Market traders have opted to adapt to new consumption habits by adding new services, diversifying the offer, incorporating new types of trade, adapting to new technologies and, mainly, by launching marketing campaigns and tools of acquisition and retention of customers.
