The coin and stamp market is held there on Sundays but the area is worth a visit to soak up the atmosphere of the area. Several restaurants but traffic make it noisy.

Of course the listed things in the heading are not the only ones which are available at the market but my preferences would go to these categories of produce. The prices are not cheap but the quality of the food does justify them

It's quite enjoyable walking thru the market....you'll get to see their produce, meat, fish... and lots of olives. You can bargain too!

A busy place in Valencia. The square is filled with cafes and eateries. One place will even cook the meat or fish you purchased in the market.

Try a strong cafè con leche at El Kiosko in the morning, a lunch in the afternoon and adrink in the evening. Beating heart of the Central Market area.

I guess this is something to organize yourself as it remains a market and with that it's likely not to be a store where goods can be put aside to ship later that day. But you can always give it a try
