A gorgeous display of gastronomic delights, Spanish jamon iberico, fish, vegetables, sweets and lots more. Expect people and noise. Even if you don't buy anything, it's worth visiting this landmark to sample a slice of essential Spain.

Typical big market with local produce, fish and meat and gifts. If you've got a kitchen in your accommodations, this would be a great place to buy local products.

This is the main market of Valencia and even if you dont buy anything is worth a visit just to see the fantastic array of mainly food that is available. The fact that it held in a beautiful building only adds to the appeal

Not only a nice touristic attraction but also a really nice market, great variety of products, clean and with a good value for money. We bought fruits, pastry and smoothies. Make sure you do not miss this while in Valencia.

Like stepping back in time, traditional market with quirky new trendy tapas e.g. vodka and caviar. Lots of food to choose from. Families and old ladies with their shopping trolleys to foodies worth a visit.
