FURO was commissioned to create the market stalls and the spatial layout of the market.

The stalls were materialized in thirteen demountable wooden structures that aim, with their straightforward design. To accomplish a good structural performance, a reduction of the number of pieces needed and an easy reuse in future events.

The stalls were organized in a 23 meters circle. All the fronts were oriented to the interior. Colorful fabric layers on top and behind each structure, protecting the vendors from the sun and rain.

In the center, a long high table invites the public to stay and underlines the informality and communal character of the market.

At the same time, they help to define the perimeter of the market in the landscape, attracting the passers-by with their chromatic exuberance to the stalls of oysters, vegetables, fruits, fresh pasta, mushrooms, bread and much more!
