Good shopping experience. Many types of weird and wonderful food available. Nice to just walk around and see everything. I enjoy the fruit stalls and their granizados freshly made.

Anything you want, it's here! Freshest meats, fish, vegetables, cheeses you can find anywhere. Also, wines, a 'international' beer store, spices, desserts, olive oils and other wonderful condiments. WOW!

We ate there for breakfast a lot of times. A real interesting place to visit. You will see all types of Spanish foods. Think fresh.

This is the most beautiful market I have seen in Europe - or anywhere I have been actually. The building itself is stunning (look up when you are inside) and the variety of food took my breath away. We have friends in Valencia and they shop here - wish it was my local market but I might get very fat!

The central market has recently been refurbished so after you have taken in the outside go in and look up at the inside decoration. Don't forget to look up at the the ceiling. As for the quality, selection and variety of the vegetables, herbs, nuts, spices, fruit, charcuterie, fish and meat I haven't seen anything better in Paris, Barcelona, Madrid... More

Great way to get a taste of Valencian foods. So many kinds of fruit and fish and herbs. And beside all of the food don't forget to view the great building that the market is in. Look up as well.

This is my second visit to Valancia and I visit the market every day for breakfast. Don't miss a walk through the seafood section and if you are looking for the best Horchata in Valencia you will find it here. (I have tried them all).

If you cook, or eat, don't miss this place. Fresh food of all sorts. Walk towards the back and you will find freshly made pastries and sandwiches. Lots of spices, chocolate, and olive oil. Many locals shopping; fresh meat and fish of all kinds.
