MARKETS IN TERRASSA We are Mireia and Silvia, two girls of Vedruna School. We’re in 3 rd ESO and we’re doing a project about the markets in Terrassa. We’re going to inform about markets in the past and now, in the present because we think that it is very interesting. These are two most important markets in Terrassa: “El mercat de la independència ” and “El mercat del Triomf”.

“Mercat de la Independència” • In the 1896, the courcil decided to build a market in the “Raval de Montserrat”. It was inagurated the 14 th November in 1908 and it was called: “El mercat de la Independència” (“Independence Market”). • The name of the market comes from the begining of the independence.
What is it used for? • There you can buy food and products of all types. In the past, the 1 rst floor was used to grow horses, and in the 1972 it wa started to use for selling fruit and vegetables.
The stalls • At the begining of the 20 th century there were 361 stalls and now there are only 94, because now more people buy in the supermarkets. The reason is that lots of people work for long hours, and they can only buy in big supermarkets. As the markets open all days except Friday from 7 in the morning to 2 and on Friday open from 7 in the morning to 8 in the night.

To knew how many people buy sometimes, occasionally, always or never in the market we did a survey to 50 persons and this are the results ALWAYS SOMETIMES OCCASIONALLY NEVER 18 % 20 % 24 % 38 %
