On the surface Mercado del Arenal looks really promising and it may well be. However when we visited there wasn't much going on, with many shops or stalls either being closed or not being very interesting. We have been to several similar Markets in other cities in Spain and have been very impressed. Not here.

Small market with mix of usual sellers of fruit and vegetables, fish and meat etc. Also a few cafes. Not much open in the afternoon, perhaps busier in the early morning.

This was a fairly typical market in an older area of Seville and although markets are always fun in Spain this was not as busy or vibrant as some.

This is not for the Arenal Market itself but for the Picnic bakery in one of the stalls. Their bread is fantastic homestyle bread made using sour dough. Crusty, chewy, and substantial. Not cheap but worth the price. Try the semilla (loaf with seeds) and the rolls. Their croissants and chocolatines are also excellent. Plus the people that work there are really nice. I think they have another bakery in Remedios.

We stayed in an apartment overlooking the Puenta De Isabel ll river in Triana and stopped off at the mercado almost every day for either lunch or a mid afternoon tapas snack and some wine. If you can get a table outside it's the perfect spot to spend a few hours in the lush seville sun enjoying a vast range of tapas dishes from various vendors on the market. Reasonable prices and lots of good food to choose from.

Can I give this zero stars? Because basically there is no market. A lot of shuttered up stalls. A few eating spots. I think they were open but really the only people/activity we saw was by the bike rental place. We headed over to the Triana market instead which was quite satisfactory (meaning there were actually open food stalls selling food to people-and lots of them).

Yet another local market in Sevilla - I was there at the time when the majority of stalls were closed, but there were some fruit and veg ones open. This place hosts the fantastic vegan restaurant, Veganitessen and the equally fantastic bakery with sourdough bread, Picnic.

Having visited many local markets in Spain this was at best average. Only half the stalls were open, yes it’s a local market and there were a lot of locals shopping but it lacked the atmosphere that we have experienced elsewhere. We stopped for a drink at one of the bars but moved on after one drink as it was frankly boring.

Not worth the effort unless you are are staying locally and need fresh Vegetables.

It was superb, we went for a bike tour and it was full of stands and bars. So local and so authentic!

i enjoy markets and the local-er the better. this is a local market with plenty of vibrant sights and smells. lovely fresh produce from the regions land and sea. the fish smelt and looked fresh and the vegetables were huge and colourful. we didn't buy anything ( which drives my wife mad) but worth a look around none the less, and its cooler inside!
if you were looking top buy produce for a picnic in one of the fabulous parks/ gardens, then you could get some great produce here.
