The Mercat Central’s immensity is the result of a combination of humble efforts. Right at its main entrance, a tiny stall serves as a welcoming jewel. The green and white ceramic in a work by Jaime Hayon is striking.

This is a project by Rafa Valls and Mercedes Valle, who fulfilled their common dream of being part of the Market. Their stall, a pantry dispensing wonderful tales on food production (unique jams, juices that tell a story), takes special care with its visual discourse. Hayon accepted the challenge, seduced by the possibilities of welcoming thousands of shoppers at Central.

UNO’s graphic image is the work of the Valencian designer Vicent Carbonell.
