Resist behind the stands in a 70-year-old market

Câmara de Matosinhos has prepared a celebration program that will last until the end of the year. Merchants keep the space alive with the help of regulars and tourists alike.

They watched the opening of the Matosinhos market from the front row and are the ones who keep the space alive 70 years later. “As long as their health allows”, this is where they will stay. Behind the stands is living proof of resistance to the changing times. They refuse to accept the eventual demise of traditional markets and, as they nurture relationships with their most loyal customers, there are those who take English courses to attract tourists.

In this building, which has been a monument of public interest for ten years, a major program to celebrate its 70 years of history runs until December. The municipal initiative includes “showcookings”, pastimes and exhibitions, in a “market where everyone fits”, describes the Chamber.
