Delegates from the URBACT Markets and Marakanda project visited Barcelona recently to see first-hand how the city organizes its markets network.

Markets are important for cities for many reasons. They offer and create incredible opportunities for social, cultural, and economic wealth at the local level.

Our project’s importance lies in its goal of providing action-orientated knowledge about how to use urban marketplaces to develop low carbon, local supply chains, better and more sustainable urban planning, employment and entrepreneurship. We believe the key to healthy cities lies in the development of marketplaces.
