The building, designed by Pere Falqués i Urpí, a municipal architect from Sant Martí de Provençals, opened in 1889. It was remodelled as part of an IMMB initiative agreed with the traders.
The works, which retained the facade, with only the wooden enclosure panels being replaced with glass ones, were carried out between 1994 and 1995. They provided the market with a series of infrastructures. Two underground floors were built to house the store rooms, loading and unloading bays, the waste collection and recycling point and a car park.
With regard to the interior of the market, the refurbishment meant a total change, with the installation of new flooring, a drainage service, new power and lighting installations, automatic doors and new, larger stalls.
