The city's residents have rated Barcelona’s markets as very good for the 12th year running.
The city’s residents have evaluated Barcelona’s markets very positively, rating them as Very Good (7.7 out of 10) for the 12th year running. This result was revealed in the new Municipal Services Survey recently made public by Barcelona City Council.
The city’s Firemen, public Libraries, Civic Centres, trams, the Bicing service, and the markets are the services rated most highly in the survey, which was carried out by the Department of Opinion Studies between April and June of this year.
The results are also positive for citizens’ perception of how these services have evolved. 55.4% of survey respondents think that services in Barcelona’s markets have improved; 20.6% say the service is the same and only 9.8% believe that service has got worse. 71.6% of respondents–out of a total number of 6,000 Barcelona residents– say that they habitually use city markets.
The evolution of the municipal markets’ user rating must also be underlined, because for the last 12 years they have been rated as very good, with an increasingly higher score each year.
