Plaza del Mercat is a market in Valencia's old town. it is just an indoor market largely featuring fruit and vegetable sellers. It is not really a tourist place, just somewhere to get food. The quality of that food is variable but some of it is good.

The building the market is housed in is large but uninspiring. It does not hold any particular beauty while the stalls themselves are a bit shiny and modern which gives off the atmosphere of a supermarket. It is not an atmospheric place to be.

This is a good place to pick up some fresh food but there's no reason for a tourist to do anything other than transact their grocery shopping.

We were advised to go here, and it was an amazing foodie heaven! I was lucky enough to see the market at 6am as the traders set up and experience the smell of extremely fresh ingredients being unloaded and get fresh berries straight from the delivery lorry. A visit later in the day left us with Fruit, Vegetables, Meats, Cheeses, Pastries, Breads and dried ingredients. Prices were competitive and sure beat Mercadona, service was outstanding; we were spoken to in fluent English when required, invited to try multiple samples, goods were sliced and carefully packed, free extras included etc. We called through daily for snacks for our days out and took a large food parcel with us on our final day. Can recommend the small food stands outside the market for Chufa, Churros or around the back there are even cafes that will cook the ingredients you've bought at the market.

I am a foodie and this was a highlight of Valencia. Spent a whole morning wandering around this massive market place, tasting, enjoying all the very best produce of Spain and the wider world. One of the best market places I have been too.

Came here on our first morning in Valencia, great little food market for picking up bits and pieces and maybe have a quick drink(there was a small bar with a pleasant atmosphere).
