Amazing selection of everything, especially fish and seafood. Lots of locals doing their shopping there.... its just even nice to go there for a coffee and a pastry - they have really good genuine food and sweet, we had delicious croissants and very good fresh fruit drinks !!

The market produce was beautiful! All stalls in categories and the smells were fantastic. This is so worth a visit if only to make you realise how boring our markets are!

The market is filled with all kinds of fresh produce, meat, as well as cooked food and drinks. Good place to shop for groceries if considering cooking during your stay in Valencia. Also good to grab a quick bite or try a variety of small snacks.

This market is just amazing. Immediately upon entering you are struck by its grandness. There are countless different stalls of cured and fresh meat and fruit and veg. There are also wine and beer vendors and bread sellers. Great place to come for a quick and cheap breakfast. We also bought supplies for a picnic lunch here. The seafood sellers are spectacle. Our 7 yr old son marvelled at the stalls selling the live eels. The variety of live shellfish on sale was mind boggling. If you are foodie this is a must see in Valencia. The building the market is housed in is impressive as well.

On arrival at the front of central market you are dazzled by bright Spanish tiles and architecture, once through the door it is breathtaking the sheer scale of the building, the varieties of fruit and veg stalls as well as fresh meat, fish, wine, spices and more. If I lived in Valencia I would never go to a supermarket again. A must visit!!!!
