Thus it was born with at least 10 merchants.
It consists of a space in the heart of Plazuela Zaragoza, where around 28 stores are installed and offer products made in a natural and fresh way, products of the day to eat in a more ecological and healthy way, and at affordable prices precisely to promote small producers and of the region.
