The Mercadal (Market Square) or Plaça Major is one of the best known and most dynamic sites in the city. This is where the weekly market is held every Tuesday and Saturday. The market has been held here since the 9th century, long before the first houses that frame the present-day square started to be built. Today you can still find stalls selling local produce, flowers, crafts and poultry, along with others selling clothes and accessories.
Every Tuesday and Saturday, Vic Market is full of life, attracting visitors from across the county of Osona and beyond.
In recent years Vic has been open for business on Sunday. The city has a new market in the Remei-Estadi neighbourhoods.
It’s on Passeig de la Generalitat and is open every Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm. There are quite a few stalls selling all sorts of items, although fruit, vegetables and other fresh produce are the star attraction. The goal of this market is to offer customers a wide variety of high quality produce.
Nowadays the market features a large number of food stalls, along with others selling clothes and fashion items. There is also an initiative under way to increase the presence of craft stalls, as well as plant and flower stalls.
