The Gastro-Market of Correos has a total of thirteen food stalls and three drinks stalls, including cocktails and vermouth. It has the charm of a food market, where the best genre is sold: meat, fish, seafood and vegetables, but not to bring them fresh home, but to consume them right there, in small restaurants but visitors can also bring them already cooked, the ‘take away’ style. The stalls are distributed in side rows and have very smooth looking, in which the showcases of Infrico, with its maximum visibility and its refined lines allow the fresh and elaborated product to look as it deserves, in all its splendour. All the raw material that will be served and cooked in the market comes from the Region of Murcia, known for its excellent and varied cuisine and the cold refrigeration equipment are manufactured in Lucena, Córdoba, where the Infrico manufacturing plant is located, 160,000 square meters in one of the most technologically modern companies in Spain.
In terms of design, the team of architects and designers in charge of the project has maintained the original façade of the well-known building while, inside, they have opted for the black and white colours and the turquoise off, together with the wood and the tones steel and glass of Infrico furniture, get a modern effect, very attractive. Fish, seafood, meats and the best pastry is appetizing and very hard to resist these.
The space is not limited to being a gastronomic space where you can enjoy great moments with family and friends, but also will house a terrace that will be called “El Invernadero” and plans to host numerous events and presentations on the top floor, especially enabled for it.
