Granollers’ great commercial facilities are complemented by events held in its streets all year round
Granollers, capital of the Vallès Oriental, is a city with a markedly commercial history. Located at a crossroads, it has been a meeting point for cultural exchange over the centuries, turning it into a dynamic, hospitable and commercially-minded city. If anything particularly characterises Granollers, it’s the wide range of possibilities it offers.
Large fashion firms, both national and international, important franchises and small traditional establishments all rub shoulders in the city’s streets, offering consumers a total shopping experience.
Granollers’ great commercial facilities are complemented by a variety of commercial events held all year round, most organised by the city’s trade associations which aim to boost their businesses through fairs and events.
It’s pedestrian precinct, covering almost 60,000 m² of the city’s old town, and its more than 500 commercial establishments mean that shopping in Granollers has become a pleasure in itself.
Shops are typically open from 10 am to 1.30 pm and from 4.30 pm to 8.30 pm, although an increasing number of stores remain open at lunchtime.

Commercial events and trade fairs
Llotja del Disseny
The Llotja del Disseny transforms the Plaça de la Porxada once a month. With a careful selection of independent designs and creations accompanied by concerts, workshops and live demos, this is a modern, innovative project to sell, via limited editions and on a small scale, items of clothing and accessories that are very difficult to find in more general establishments.
DFACTORY Christmas Market
The DFACTORY Christmas Market takes place in the complex of the old Roca Umbert factory, now converted into a cultural centre. Here more than 100 independent designers, craftsmen and creatives from the fashion sector meet up.
During the Christmas season, in the old town of Granollers you can also find the best Christmas gifts at two other markets. The Christmas market held in the Plaça de la Porxada specialises mostly in gift items while the market located in the Plaça de l’Església has trees, plants and Christmas decorations.
A city activity with the aim of boosting services and culture through commerce, restaurants, bars and hotels.
During this night, a hundred shops, restaurants, bars and hotels creatively display the quality of their wares. Commercial, gastronomic, leisure and cultural products and services, with discounts and promotions, to enjoy the city at the beginning of spring and for all tastes and preferences.
GRN - Shop window catwalk
This event is held in October and is a showcase for window displays that turns the pedestrianised area of Granollers into an original and groundbreaking area for one day. It’s organised by the stores and companies located in the city centre and is a novel and different way to boost awareness.
The Great Street Fair
This discount fair is held twice a year, during the months of March and September. Shops take out their stocks of clothes and accessories and companies offer their services on the streets themselves. The main thoroughfares of Granollers are filled with marquees taking part in the activity. An event with incredible offers and promotions.
