The Farmers’ Market in the centre of Funchal was inaugurated on November 24, 1940. This project by Edmundo Tavares (1892-1983), presents the architecture of the Estado Novo, and reflects the intention to make it the great supply hub of the city.
Large panels of tiles of faiança Batisttini de Maria de Portugal, dating from 1940 and painted with regional themes, by João Rodrigues, adorn the façade, the main door and the fishmonger.
Nowadays this space still performs the functions for which it was created, in it marketing products of all kinds, in an environment where colors, sounds, smells and diverse people are mixed.
