I visited on new year's eve to shop for lunch and really liked it. It's smallish, but has a lot of "shops" with all kinds of goods. The things I bought were fresh and really tasty. Totally recommend

This modern, rather small market, is 100 feet from one of the entrances to the Plaza Mayor. Lots of activity, appeared to be largely locals, at least on this date. The outside of the building is quite pleasing to the eye. Lots of seafood stalls, mixed in with meat, produce, and a few places to grab a bite.

ran across this just after getting to town. DH and I enjoy visiting local markets ... we picked up some fruit, salami, nuts and a few spices (got some saffron to give our friends) quite reasonably. The bathrooms here are locked to prevent problems with "riff-raff" ... one of the vendors was kind enough to let me in. Colorful windows.

The Salamanca Central Market provides a snapshot of local produce for the region including fish, vegetables and fruit and the divine Spanish meats. We were lucky enough to sample a number of the products as part of our tour and it was a great start to our visit to the golden city of Salamanca.

Interesting building.
Visiting on a Monday morning was somewhat disappointing as only about one-quarter of the stalls were open and all were selling either meat or fish.

This central market looks do different from others with hustle and bustle, maybe it was still early - 11 am. The Iberian pork is so present and looks delicious.

This large indoor market hall is a great place to see various sausages and hams, meats, fish, produce, herbs, etc. The meat and fish are surprisingly different from what you'd see in the US, with various grades and types of ham, including those from pigs fed on acorns. The various cured sausages are really good. We bought some saffron and half a salami-type sausage as gifts. The sausage got confiscated and tossed by USA customs even thought it was fully cured, ready-to-eat, and shrink-wrapped--they said only cooked canned meats with bar codes can come in. No problem with the saffron.

Like the markets in Spain in general. My experience in Salamanca was that we did not really entered the market because of the bad smell smouldering the entrance. Because of that I can not review the market.

We stopped by here to shop and check out all the local produce, meat and cheeses. Iberico ham is all over since this is the main area where it is produced. Worth a stop and pick up a snack or spices as well.

Compared with other central markets in European cities, this one is pretty limited. Two floors, very clean, meats, fruits, seafood mostly. Not really a fun place for tourists (not a lot of see, nothing really to take home in a suitcase) but it's worth a walk around to see local food fare.
