Impressive building, masses of individual stalls with everything you need, includes tourist nik naks, several bars and cafes and masses of fish, veg, fruit and meat. Not too hot inside even in summer.

on first day in Valencia we went to the market and purchased some fruit,wine and giant prawns to make a paella and some spices from a stall that had paella mix to just add rice and water. It turned out better than some we had when went out

No trip to Valencia is complete without a visit to this wonderful indoor market, rated possibly the best indoor market in Spain! A fabulous building - don't forget to look up at the central ceiling! All of your senses will be challenged here for sure - make sure it's on your 'morning' list of things to do as it closes... More

This market has extensive varieties of hams and other meats, olive oils, vegetables, fruits, and seafood. You could also get cooked paella and other foods to-go. The architecture was amazing. Spending time there is a great way to discover the local foods and which ones are delicacies.

For some reason all the doors to the market were closed the day I was there. Hope others have better luck :)

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place...it is so awesome to watch so many older people with their carts and bags buying the ingredients for their evening meal and in such surroundings filled with amazing sights and sounds. The vendors are very pleasant and even funny at times and even let you sample their goods. Vegetables are HUGE!!!, the days of these... More

The square itself it's nothing special, just little restaurants and bars where to eat. The market, instead, it's really nice. Beautiful architecture, vast spaces, a lot of stands selling every kind of Spanish specialties and more. That's for sure a place worth visiting in Valencia, both for the market and the food sold inside!

I feel so grateful to be able to do my grocery shopping here on a weekly basis. The fish is wonderful... the products are amazing, and there is even an amazing little bar inside, with Michelin star ratings.
