All the vegetables In different colours. Oils, spices and fruits. Fish and seafood. All the possible meats that you can think of. You should take time to visit this place while in Valencia. Consider also eating here. The tapas place is great!

I absolutely loved the central market when I lived in Valencia! The building is a beautiful classic piece of architecture, and the market itself really gives you a feel for Valencia itself. The people are kind and there is such a huge variety of products to buy. Inside there are tons of food stalls with everything from cold cuts to... More

Of all the similar markets we have seen in numerous countries, the Mercado Central is the most outstanding! Every morning we went there for coffee and pastries and the occasional fresh juice as our breakfast. There are amazing fruit and vegetable vendors as well as butchers and seafood vendors. The sights, the smells and the occasional tasting samples are worth... More

Unlike the market in Barcelona, this market feels more like a market for the locals. Housed in a large building, it's clean, and full of locals shopping for their daily needs. it's great to stroll around and see what people buy/eat here.

this place is breathing the local culture. Great place to spend your afternoon, browsing or buying your fresh food and condiments for lunch or dinner. El mercado central is a popular local shopping market with a great reputation built in the heart of Valencia.

We were staying close by and used the market rather than the supermarket for fresh produce. The fish market was incredible never seen many of the shellfish and prices were very reasonable. The many delis were well stocked even had a few wine and craft beer outlets. We find the beef in Spain not as good as in the Southern... More

The building the market was in was beautiful. It was clean and the smells were amazing. The food on offer was varied and the fresh produce was out of this world. We purchased some strawberries for a euro the size of plums. Definitely worth the effort.
