Opened in 1962, it's located at the meeting point between Calle Bolivia and Calle Potosí, with an entrance off both streets and through a central chamfered corner. The trapezium-shaped building is nearly 1,600 m² and is spread across three levels (the two upper ones being given over to commercial activities).
The market, whose outside has taken on a unique appearance since it was given a glass façade, is home to more than 70 establishments. These comprise indoor stalls and shops that can be accessed from the street. They have a hugely-varied, select offering, which includes: meats and meat products, fish and seafood (fresh and frozen), cold meats, cheeses, hams, poultry, fruits, vegetables, breads and cakes, all sorts of pickles, coffees and oils, as well as home-décor products, clothes and accessories, flowers, plants, homeware and more. There is parking for customers with direct access to the market. The majority of the shops have a home delivery service and there is also a virtual market on the Internet.
