“Wonderful foodie market on the Paseo de Victoria”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

This 'market' is near the end of Paseo de la Victoria, and is made up lots of stall offering food and drinks (a bit like a smaller version of Mercado San Miguel in Madrid). There are some great food offerings for all times of the day and evening - from oysters, shellfish, iberica meats, and a host of different tapas. At the rear endue of the market is another hall where bread, ice cream, coffee and hot chocolate, amongst other things, are available. The spiced dark chocolate is to die for!

Really friendly staff on all the stalls - very helpful in making sure you find just what you are looking for.

The market is only five minutes from the historic quarter (Puerta de Sevilla). We found it a welcome place to rest and refresh in the November chill - we're sure it would be even more of a find during the hot summer months.

“Gastromarket to shake up staid old Cordoba”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

I stopped in at Mercado Victoria last week and had a right old gastronomic adventure, nibbling on manchego and cecina with a fine Ribera del Duero, various incarnations of salmorejos, to er, baked potatoes and frozen yoghurt (let that one pass), champagne and oysters, and even Argentinian-style empanadas filled with rabo di toro (oxtail) I could have had sushi or quite a few other dishes but I was, full! All in, I recommend visitors get to el Mercado Victoria for a taste of Cordoba embracing the modern world (you can't live on bacalau and rabo for ever!)

“great place to explore”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

in what looks like an orangerie in victoria park, the now repurposed space is full of interesting food shops that serve from breakfast food to excellent oysters, caviar and fine french champagne. a perfect alternative to the usual restaurants in the city as one may be able to 'graze' in this wonderful attraction in the park.

“Great Place, Great Food”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Excellent little place with nice decor and a great array of food to browse or delve into. We tried a smoothie from the frutería and it was delicious

“Well worth a detour”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

We were doing an afternoon walking tour around the outskirts of the 'old town' - just the 4 of us following a tour map that the hotel gave us - this place looked good, so we spent some time wandering around drooling at the exquisite offerings on display. We finally purchased 4 glasses of excellent wine & a 12 gourmet 'mini-burgers' (I know - it's disgraceful eating burgers in Spain, but the locals were going mad for them too) The food was excellent, of course and we would have stayed to try some other morsels but lacked time. Will visit again next time we are in town. There's something for all tastes on offer. Do visit if you're passing.
