As the largest market in Spain we were a bit disappointed, not the best market we've been in but it provided 10 mins of shelter on a wet day

This is a typical European market. If you are looking for food, check it out, otherwise no need, especially if you are traveling across spain and visitied such grand markets as Boqueria in Barcelona.
We did however, buy some high end jamon iberico bellota, and ate it right on the spot. yum!

We rarely miss markets in Southern countries. This is a lovely building with very attractive windows, but it is a ghost-market. All we found open were a few butcher stands. Half of the market has no stands. We were there before noon, expecting to eat find something to eat while there, but found most stands closed. It was either raw meat or eat elsewhere. We chose the latter.

My wife is very interested in local foods. She found the mercado to be Amazing. The best value and selection around for meats and Foie Gras that we've ever found. She bought 100 euros of food that we would easily pay 4 times for outside Spain. Not the best for Americans who can't take meat products home, but great for EU nationals who want some local flavor.
