The market is open from 8am - 2-30 daily. There is a buzz of activity selling fruit, veg, fish cheeses, and pastries. The choices on offer are excellent. There are lots of cafés and restaurants around the market.

Liked piles of fresh fruit, fresh smoothies for 1 €, smoked ground peppers, spices, dried meat delicacies, and also a bit unusual snails :)

This is the perfect place to find good food, it is open until 3ish and you can get everything, there is also amazing architecture and design with the moor-style tiles.

A must see in Valencia! From outside the market looks ok but when you get inside all the magic hits you! Lots of nice looking food, amazing atmosphere and really friendly people!

This is an amazing market that is more similar to a farmer's market than a place to go and snack your way through the market. Many fresh fish, fruit vegetable and wine stalls. Come here if you are looking to get some fresh snacks or cook an amazing meal.

After having been to so many markets thoughout Asia and Europe on this three month trip, this market was the last on my list as far as noteworthy. It wasn't even worth the visit. Maybe because it was a Monday, but they just didn't have much to offer
