I love markets and this is a beautifull building with delicious treats inside. Go in, take some pictures, buy some food and run away or you'll spend all your budget there.

If you have never been to a typically Spanish market take a look at this one. We live in Spain and most towns still have a covered market building selling fresh produce/meat/bread/sweets/wine/spices and herbs. But this one is on a slightly grander scale and if you look up at the ceiling you will see the most amazing decorative tiling. When... More

This is a great market, used by the locals, and just great for a wander round. Lots of different food - fruit, veggies, meat, fish, hams, herbs - just all very interesting and a big local market. (We also went to Mercado Colon - don't bother - its all cafes now.)

very good food, the place is a lot less touristy than the boqueria in Barcelona. it's also smaller than the market in BCN but it's a very nice building with splendid glasswork.

I could move to Valencia just to buy produce, meat, fish, eggs, chicken, spices, olives, bread and bakery items of the quality sold at this market. We walked around the market mesmerized by the fresh food at such amazing prices. For someone who loves to cook and/or eat you have to visit this market. How fortunate for local restaurants to...

A typical market where locals still do their shopping, so it's not for tourists only. We spent hours here and sampled all food that was on offer. A must do for food lovers. The food that has not 'travelled' to reach your table tastes so much better, we forget to appreciate it.

Since first going too Valencia 4 years ago, my wife & I visit every year when holidaying in Javea; it is only just over an hour away, but the hustle & bustle of the atmosphere and all the different vendors is fantastic. There are a huge number of vendors selling pretty much any fresh produce you could think of, whether... More
