19th Century Market
Vilanova i la Geltrú celebrates the Noucentista Market this Sunday in Plaça de les Cols and nearby Can Papiol
The festival will feature entertainment, craft stalls, music and tastings.
The vegetable stalls based on those from the 19th century can be found in Plaça de les Cols, its original pre-pandemic space. Carrer del Comerç will host stalls selling artisan products and the Can Papiol Romantic Museum will have a gastronomic tasting area.
The celebration in honor of St. Isidore, patron saint of the peasantry, will begin at 10:30 a.m. Six stalls of vegetables and greens will be in Plaça de les Cols, reproducing the 19th century style of sale, with period costumes and utensils, such as wicker baskets and wooden boxes.
On Carrer del Comerç there will be stalls selling artisan products such as sausages, soaps, cheeses, honey and others. In Plaça Diputació, the group Corrandes d’Animació will accompany the festivities with music and in the gardens of the Museu Romàntic Can Papiol there will be a tasting area called “olents i sabors noucentistes”.
