“Great market - time to practice your spanish !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Try your spanish - the stallholders really appreciate it (if they are not too busy) and take time to explain their products

“Overwhelming!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

When you enter this huge huge market you don't know where to look first.Here you can buy everything you can ever dreamed on thinking of food: fish in all kinds, meat, jamon, vegetables etc. etc.
I could have stayed there for hours but Valencia had so much more to offer!

“How to choose a stall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Already reviewed this some years ago. Centred in an Art Deco building, contains hundreds of individual stalls of meat, fish and veg. Just a fine experience to browse all the different produce and experience the buzz that it creates.
