Santiago's present-day Food Market was built in 1941. The previous City Market, which was demolished in 1937 to make way for the current building, was the first permanent structure housing the different markets that existed in Compostela at that time.

16th century. The construction of the present-day building was commissioned in 1501 by the Catholic Monarchs in order to take care of the sick and the pilgrims of the divine Xacobe, according to the Latin inscription along the façade's upper frieze. Nevertheless, its construction had already been decided in 1492, coinciding with the discovery of America.

Late 17th c. Baroque. Designed by Domingo de Andrade, it was altered in the 20th century with the addition of the upper balustrade and another floor.
