  • It would be amazing to have a market like this at home, beautiful building with history but just amazing fresh produce. From almonds to prawns to amazing displays of fruit and veg. Worth acting like a...  read more »
  • The market is pretty full of fruit, fresh fish and meat. A trip to feel the scents and see colors of seasonal fruit but having thirst I stopped in those banquets where you could drink and eat. I try to make you understand the place because I got a ticket without header ... out there are tables and chairs not to the first on the left having the market behind the second where there is the exit. I took a saucer of goat cheese was extra salty not to mention the ham a saucer that the waitress sells as a super ham costs £ 20 I assure you, it was a small dish and salty ham. Much we took 2 glasses of beer apiece from thirst. A place for tourists.

  • Near the parched River you can see the market building. Nice big stained glass facade. Within coloured fruit, vegetables, nuts, fish and meat. Many bars inside and out. Delicious had lunch with vino azul.

  • I didn't even had the chance to sit down, I ordered brochetas de gambas y salmón, a couple of Cañas and continued enjoying the day.
  • A must see for tourists but totally practical as well. A huge moorish influenced undercover food market selling a range of freshly picked fruit and vegetables, and a fine selection of freshly caught fish and shellfish. Loud, busy, large it's easy to lose track of where you've just come from. Love it
  • Absolutely fantastic if you want to do some shopping: cheap, excellent quality and great selection. Get your fish (the tuna! OMG!), your iberico and your almonds etc. perfect for that. The tapas joints are hit or miss.
  • Great market for all kinds of local produce of excellent quality. Or just go there for the experience. Also has a few cafés and tapas bars inside. I recommend to go for a stroll inside, and after that a (second?) breakfast of hot chocolate and churros in one of the cafeterias in the surrounding area.
  • This is a proper market, bit daunting to start with but the variety of food on offer is amazing. Well worth a visit even if you don't buy anything
