The market is split between the raw ingredient retailers. ( upstairs and half of the downstairs) and the pintxos sellers in half of the lower floor. Take a walk looking at the amazing meat, fish, fungi, cheese, fruit and vegetables on offer and then squeeze...More

... but there are better in Europe and for that in Spain. The produce is still first class but the actually site as tourist attraction lacks a vibe. Markets of Barcelona, Madrid Valencia are better experience

A busy, noisy fun hub of pintxo bars in the old Ribero Market. So much to chose from. Tram stops right at the entrance.

Ended our tour of Bilbao at the market for some food and we were let down. It is a great idea to have various pintxos bars and a central area to eat but you can get much better food and better price around Bilbao bars....More

The market had a fascinating range of foods, mainly fish and meat, The eating area downstairs had a range of outlets for every taste. You may find cheaper food elsewhere but you are spoilt for choice.

Hi, The market is open Mon-Fri: 08:00-14:00 & 17:00-19:00 Sat: 8:00-14:30 But check once in Bilbao as those might be summer opening times. You want good restaurants? I could not recommend any. I just went to pintxos bars... More
