Everything looks so fresh and good. I'd buy it all if I had a home nearby :-) I didn't even know some things (still) even exists.

Completely renovated a couple of years ago, its an experience. big and bustling. to much to take in at once, you have ton visit a couple of times. and dont forget the restaurants outside along the building, very Valenciano and a good price/quality ratio

As an architecture buff, Valencia has so many beautiful buildings that when I go to them for some specific reason I forget why I went there and just look at the building. That happened to me in Oceanografic (I forgot to look at the fish), the Post Office (I forgot to buy the stamps when I looked up and saw... More

This is a foodies dream and quite frankly puts the London markets to shame ( especially the fish ) beautiful arrangements of the freshest produce at fantastic prices .. It has a great bar in the middle for vino and tapas just in case you feel peckish or thirsty on route. Well worth a visit and a short stroll from... More

This is a worthwhile visit, plenty of colour and visuals. Great choice of fruits and some we had never seen before! Would recommend a walk through.

We dropped by for half an hour before heading to the airport it was fine, but no different from any other central market you may have seen in Spain. For me, Barcelona market on La Ramblas was more impressive.

The building it self, the stores amd the fresh food are all very nice. Fresh fruit juices are great. The history of the building, the founding families, once swamp area now a great part of town are all good to learn.

Worth to look to go round all the different areas and seeing the interaction between buyers and sellers. Enjoy the smells and ambiance...and of course the noise!!

We first thought we could easily grab a meal at this market (like in Lisbon) but it's mostly filled with stalls of all types of delicious foods. Great for buying groceries but not worth it to try and grab a meal. Didn't see many places at all to sit. There was a small bar but way too busy to grab... More
