In order to fulfill the objective of guaranteeing the security of all users of the municipal markets, promoting economic development, and turning them into tourist attractions, the City Council led by Renán Barrera Concha is working on the refurbishment and modernization of Lucas de Gálvez and San Benito markets.

The Mayor informed that the rehabilitation and improvement works of the two markets, which will provide harmonious and high-quality spaces, are expected to be completed by August of this year. This will allow for the design of new programs to attract more people to this area of the historic center.

He pointed out that this rehabilitation will contribute to revitalizing and strengthening the economic development of the Municipality because the artistic programs that will be carried out will attract more users and visitors to the two markets.

“The remodeling works that we are carrying out in these two emblematic sites of Mérida’s Historic Center will stimulate the local economy. The adaptation of the spaces will result in a more dynamic, welcoming, and tourist-friendly urban image,” he expressed.

The Mayor recalled that the Municipality is investing a total of 19,356,629.88 pesos in the Lucas de Gálvez market, while 10,018,242.77 pesos are being invested in San Benito market.

On his part, the Director of Public Works, David Loría Magdub, reported that the works in Lucas de Gálvez market are progressing at a good pace, as they are currently in the final stage of refurbishing the stalls.

“The stainless steel countertops are currently being installed to offer diners better quality service and ensure hygiene at the site. In that area, artistic programs will be offered, making it a recreational spot that will attract more customers and tourists,” he commented.

He also added that the refurbishment of the outdoor area for artistic and cultural activities and the viewpoint is ongoing. This will provide a unique view to visitors, enhancing the architectural beauty of this place built in 1950. The work is being carried out in coordination with the National Institute of Anthropology and History.

“The idea is to respect the original structure and recognized areas of the market, such as the stairs that provide access to the upper part, where an electric ramp will be installed leading to the bridge that connects to the dining area and the zone for artisans, which is located near the jewelry area,” he explained.

Remodeling works and the construction of sanitary facilities and other commercial areas are also being carried out in the same market.

The official mentioned that, in the case of San Benito market, favorable progress is being made in maintaining the wastewater treatment plant. Wells have been constructed, the structure of the plant has been modified, and new pumps will be installed.

Furthermore, new domes are being installed on the market’s roof to replace the acrylics damaged by the passage of time. The condition of the ventilation system is also being checked, and damaged parts are being replaced to ensure proper functioning.

Finally, renovation works are underway for the waste area and public restrooms on the ground floor.
