The historic Horta da Mitra Market and its surrounding hawker area are set to reopen tomorrow after months of renovations, the Municipal Affairs Bureau (IAM) has announced.

The dry and wet produce market’s original 13 stall-keepers – who relocated during the renovation period – have all returned to significant upgrades, including new air conditioning, lighting and sewage systems.

Five additional stalls have been added to the market, which is located in the heart of Macao peninsula.

Built in 1939 and boasting a distinctive art deco facade, Horta da Mitra Market’s recent renovation also involved architectural preservation efforts.

The IAM said that despite multiple repairs over the years, the market had become seriously dilapidated – prompting “comprehensive reorganisation works of the market and optimisation of the equipment and facilities.”

“The wet and slippery environment of the traditional market has been improved,” it said in a statement, “to provide the public with pleasant shopping experiences.”
