法马利康市政市场于 1952 年 9 月 21 日开放，它的建设具有双重目的：一方面缓解旧展览场地（现在的D. 玛丽亚二世广场）的拥挤，另一方面创造有着更好的卫生条件的宜人空间。在经历了一段黄金时期之后，在干预之日，市场将自己展示为一个过时的空间，没有动态能力来吸引多样化的新消费者。
Opened on September 21st of 1952, the construction of the Famalicão Municipal Market had a dual purpose: on one hand to decongest the old fairgrounds (nowadays D. Maria II Square) and on the other hand to make a more pleasant space with better hygienic conditions.After a golden period, the Market presented itself, at the date of the intervention, as an obsolete space without a dynamic capacity to attract new and diversified consumers.
主楼由三个连续的矩形主体组成，带有一个拥有城市徽章的炮塔，标志着D. 玛丽亚二世广场和曼努埃尔卡瓦略船长街之间的过渡。在较高处，通过两个入口进入市场的庭院（广场）。向北，靠近曼努埃尔卡瓦略船长街，向西，靠近D. 玛丽亚二世广场。
The main building consists of three contiguous rectangular bodies, with a turret that bears the City’s coat of arms, which marks the transition between D. Maria II Square and Capitão Manuel Carvalho Street.At a higher elevation, the access to the Market’s courtyard (Square) is made through two entrances- to the North, by the captain Manuel Carvalho Street and to the West, by the D. Maria II Square.
The courtyard, at a lower level, was supported by three buildings in which was sold meat, fish and fruit. The main volume, which was maintained and rehabilitated in the architectural Project, takes form of a broken line in blueprint, but in a higher level it accompanies the street front. The interior spaces are occupied by several commercial establishments (street stores).
The intervention on the Famalicão Municipal Market aimed its rehabilitation, with the premise of enhancing its architectural character and improving the existing conditions.Thus, in addition to the intervention on the existing building, a new metallic structure was built, guaranteeing the ability to meet the needs of the permanent and cyclical Market and still allow the opening of a new urban front to Marechal Humberto Delgado Avenue and Mouzinho de Albuquerque Square.
The coating of this new body guarantees the shading and waterproofing of the space and has as reference the pre-existing triangular module of the turret, which also allows a greater integration in the surroundings.
