Last october, 26 representatives of 8 cities from Europe and North Africa took part in a study visit to see how first-hand Barcelona manages its markets network. The delegations was made up of politicians and technicians responsible for markets in participating cities on the URBACT Markets project, an EU-financed programme aimed at sharing best practice between cities in Europe, and another EU-financed programme called Marakanda aimed at cities in the Mediterranean that want to develop their markets network.

The project involves 9 European cities and aims to implement good practices in each of them. Among other ideas it is also contemplating a 'European Markets' Day'.
The sales balance for the third edition of the fair showed a 15 per cent increase in tasting-session ticket sales and a good level of direct sales at the stalls.
