I always head for this area at lunchtime. There are a few Restaurants selling Tapas, at a reasonable price. They also do the Menu Del Dia [ 3 Course Set Menu']. Again Reasonable Price. Have a wonder round, look at the boards outside and see what is on offer. It is not expensive to eat in this Plaza.

Delicious market located in a beautiful and unique architectural building; a market were you feel like buying everything. Would love to have a market like this next door.

This market is Europes biggest! It's filled with fresh fruits and vegetabeles, fish and meat, juices, candy, and so on. It's interesting just to walk around and see, and the building is magnificent! Well worth a visit! Remember to be there latest 13:30, as the booths starts closing at this time.

I don't know really why tourists love ourselves to visit local markets. This one has recently been completely restored showing a outstanding arquitectural style. Counters allow us to see a comprenhensive representation of local high quality mediterranean food. People is very kind and very good photographs can be taken. It is worhtwhile to buy goods for enjoying back at home.... More

A very nice, art-deco building, well preserved and still a hive of activity. Every day fresh food is sold here and it looks and smells just awesome!

This area, and inside the actual Central Market, is a great place to visit for local food and beverages. The restaurants immediately surrounding the market as well as different food vendors are just wonderful. This is a must to do while you are in Valencia. We were here virtually every day buying something to eat for the day, or to... More

I've visited numerous European cities where I have been told that the local market is a 'must see' and invariably it has been a disappointing experience, usually because I have arrived to a throng of other tourists snapping pictures and overpriced souvenirs. The market in Valencia, however, was the real deal, or at least it was at 9am in the... More

Wonderful experience, the colours, the smell, the activity...special interest is the fish hall, although quite a "nose" experience, which you get used to after a minute, a place that shows what varieties the sea has to offer

Seeing the coffee Nazi work is the best. He's scary but entertaining. No market like this one. Market has everything you could ever want food wise.
