It is closed on Sundays and holidays. It is located by the Roman wall. There was an old market on the site that was started in the 13th century.
The architect of the Central Market was Felix Navarro Perez to replace the open air market, and the construction started in 1902 and was finished a year later. A sculptor who worked on the building with Navarro was Jaime Lluch. The organization that ordered its construction was the Sociedad Nuevo Mercado. This was one of the first Modernist constructions in Zaragoza, and the building used stone, brick, iron and glass, using a basilical plan with three naves. The central nave is higher and wider. The capitals of the iron columns are decorated with designs of acanthus leaves, palms, and fruits. The building was declared a National Historic Monument in 1978 and a Site of Cultural Interest in 1982. The building was renovated in 1986 when refrigerated installations were installed. In 1999 air conditioning and heating were added to the building.
