The functioning of the wholesale agricultural and food market dates back to 1990. Its predecessor was the famous market at Kromera Square, which, during the period of political transformation and the dynamic development of Wrocław and the region, adequately met the needs and expectations of the residents. The concept of building a new market was presented to the municipal authorities of Wrocław in 1989 by Andrzej Kobel. In 1990, the company WPPHU Targpiast Sp. z o.o. was registered, with 51% of shares held by the Municipality of Wrocław and 48% by Andrzej Kobel. The goal of the company was to build and manage a wholesale agricultural and food market. In a short period, "Targpiast" expanded its scope of activities to Lower Silesia and neighboring regions.

The market was located on unused land at Bolesława Krzywoustego Street. The exemplary reclamation of the area and the manner in which it was further utilized received high recognition from the Ministry of the Environment. After eight years of vigorous market development, the land at Krzywoustego Street was sold for the construction of the "Korona" shopping center. The Municipality of Wrocław withdrew from further participation in the company. The economic potential of the market was developed by a group of operators and employees of WPPHU.

Targpiast with its leader Andrzej Kobel became a new company - Targpiast Sp. z o.o. with 100% private, Polish capital. The market was relocated and built on the land designated by the authorities of the Municipality of Wrocław at Obornicka Street. The company utilized its proven, proprietary know-how, retained long-standing traditions, and during the challenging, almost acrobatic change of location, did not lose a single of its existing users.

One of the subsequent pivotal stages in the history of "Targpiast" was the necessity for a thorough reconstruction of the market due to the construction of the inner-city bypass in Wrocław. The route of the bypass deviated from the original plans, leading to the elimination, relocation, and expansion (involving the purchase of new land) of the sector dealing with imported fruits and vegetables, which had the most advanced technical infrastructure. Despite the immense scale of challenges, "Targpiast" maintained a complete, complementary product structure and preserved the continuity of operations on the square.

Today, "Targpiast" is a market with a systematically expanding technical infrastructure, modern technologies, and management methods. In its industry, it consistently holds the number 1 position in the Wrocław agglomeration, Lower Silesia, and neighboring regions. The number of sellers and buyers is consistently on the rise.
