“The art of fruit and veg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

If you like markets, this is wonderful. A beautiful building filled with the best quality fruit and vegetables. Bustling with people, it makes you want to rent a flat and do some local cooking!

“Pretty & impressive market”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We went to Madrid before coming To Valencia, where they have the Mercado San Miguel. In Madrid the place was Packed with people eating and drinking, so I thought this place was the same. A place To eat and drink, but unfortunately this was more a Market for locals To buy their groceries. Although you can get your hams. The place is quite pretty and impressive.

“stunning, traditional and plentiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

this market, 900 years old almost is an absolute gem! situated in the centre of town, and is really a sight for sore eyes. It is a beatiful mosaic of blue-ish tiles on the outside and inside it is a vast space where it is possible to buy fresh produce, lovely meat, and there are several small chocolatiers. the architecture is stunning and this market is definitely worth a visit. on its doorstep is a variety of cafes, restaurants and bars where it is possible to eat and drink. Recommended fr all.

Typical Spanish market with interesting architecture. Amazing local food, like a farmer's market, fresh produce. Free parking in the centre of the city. Handy for the Lonja
