The 5th Mercabros returns with force and incorporates local and international stops

5th Mercabros

During the morning of this Sunday, Plaça Llobregat, in the neighborhood of Can Bros, has hosted the fifth edition of the Mercabros, the exchange market, second-hand products and handicrafts where some thirty stalls from Martorell and others populations have arrived to offer their inventory. Despite the threat of rain and the doubts of visitors, the public has been arriving throughout the morning and has visited a market that wants to consolidate from now on.

The Mercabros allows local traders, artisans and others who want to offer reused products and paradisiacs from cities such as Masquefa, Castellbisbal or Sant Cugat dle Vallès, to exhibit their stalls and make themselves known in the Baix Llobregat. A reference in the region, the Martorell market promotes the recycling of textile products, encourages recycling and awakens a neighborhood ready to grow on market Sundays.

The promoter of this initiative, Conxita Garrigó, arrived in the neighborhood three years ago and believes that the market, which dreams of turning it into a monthly, would bring this area to many more residents.

An area where everyone joins

The participation of the neighborhood association comes through the restaurant service, which has been active throughout the morning, and will help the entity through what is collected from the drinks. Its manager, Joan Rodríguez, explained that it is a good initiative and that the market can help “bring it to life, it is always positive”.

Although there are local stallholders, traders from other towns have also decided to take part. Roser Delgado, from Terrassa, explained that he discovered the market and decided to come “it came to me that it was done and I wanted to try it, I didn’t know it” and spoke of a “very welcoming” atmosphere.

Encourage recycling from the market

Councilors Lluís Amat, Rosa Cadenas, Gerard Mimó and Lluís Sagarra were able to visit the market and talk to the stallholders to get a feel for it. In this sense, the Councilor for Commerce Rosa Cadenas spoke of the good reception after more than a year without celebrating it. In addition, it has highlighted related products, handicrafts and recovered objects that have a second use. The location of the market, he said, helps a lot, because “people can get to know it through fairs and markets related to sales, it even encourages tourism”.

The Mercabros has reappeared after it was one of the last activities to be held before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in February 2020. Its organizers are already preparing the next edition, which could arrive very soon.
