The market Conception is a modernist building with a typical iron structure and large glass windows. It is situated at Aragon street (so if you’ve circulated by car Barcelona, you’ve gone ahead sure …) between the streets Valencia, Bruc and Girona. The market has retail space of more than 2,500 m².
Inside the Mercat de la Conception there is more than fifty food stalls where you can buy fresh produce; there are also the typical market bars, a supermarket and shops Service. The flower stalls are on the facade on Valencia Street.
The fact that florists Market of Conception are open all day, has been awarded this market the nickname “Flower Market” (Mercat de les flors) very often, but actually the real “Mercat de les Flors “is a space in Barcelona dedicated to music and dance.
