The market is the property of the city of Riga. Its renovation was funded from private investments. When the restoration of the historic pavilion of the Āgenskalns Market began, three companies responded without hesitation – their values prompted these businesses to support this ambitious restoration project.

“Schwenk Latvija”, underlining the idea of heritage and long-lasting construction, provided special concrete for the floor of the historic pavilion, thus literally creating a strong foundation for the market’s future.

The brand “Hammerite” provided an excellent solution for the restoration and long-term protection of the impressive metal structures of the Āgenskalns Market pavilion – “Hammerite” paints are a shield that protects the restored metal structures from rust and makes the renovation last.

“Swedbank” inspired and supported establishment of educational and cooperation platform “Youth Station”– “Jauniešu stacija”, – a place where interaction takes place, merging culture, science and business. “Swedbank” opened a public book exchange shelf on the 2nd floor of the market, which is popular amongst market visitors.

In the public environment of Latvia, Āgenskalns Market is a unique example, when a private investor has invested in a historical property of the Riga City Council, which is also a cultural monument of national importance, with the condition of maintaining the functioning market and sustaining the cultural environment therein.
