O Berbés Market

Before the opening of O Berbés food market, one of the oldest in Vigo, produce was sold outdoors, in the square. But the Praza dos Ratos market (Mice Square), O Berbés’s previous name, ceased to exist in 1966, when the current market was built. At the time, it was part of the Ribeira de O Berbés, where fish had been sold for over a hundred years. In the 19th century, the sea came up to the arcades and this was Vigo’s only fish market, except the one in Pescadería Street, which is now Calle de las Ostras (Oyster Street).

Almost two centuries have passed, but O Berbés still stands out for the quality of its fish and seafood. As time progressed, the market also started to sell meat, fruit and vegetables, bread, flowers...

Tips and recommendations: 

From O Berbés, you can access the Old Town directly through Teofilo Llorente Street. If browsing in the market has opened your appetite, that same street has several restaurants and tapas bars.
