  • Very nice place to visit, to sea all the produce like fish and vegetables nicely displayed and experience the 'vibe' of such a market. A mix of tourist and locals.

  • A must see and visit. Great market offering all the delicacies Valencia has to offer. The beautiful building itself is based right in the heart of Valencia in the old town. You will find everything from Olive oil to the best fresh fish. It's a fantastic experience to walk around and taste the delights on offer. A number of stalls offer nibble cups for a couple of Euros,
  • Every time I get to stop in Valencia, if possible I make a stop at this perfectly renovated covered market (for tourist though). You'll find the finest Spanish product at the highest price (but all in one place). Valencia is becoming more and more like Barcelona where traditional life (and merchants) are yielding to hipster/tourist shop (like in Paris HS been for many years now). Anyway still perfect infrastructure, perfect food and perfect wines (see my others wine places I uncovered in Valencia).
  • Great variety of meat, fish, vegetables and local cuisine in low prices. I would totally recommend it even for tourists. If you wish authentic tastes that touristic places don't offer, the central market is ideal for you. You might need to communicate only in Spanish, but I suppose that's the price of enjoying food that would satisfy locals and not only tourists...
  • Great place to walk around, eat & drink, take pics and enjoy the vibe. It’s a great mix of locals going about their day to day market purchases and tourists. You can grab a bite to eat or get all the ingredients for any dish you have in mind! Outside are some seating areas to enjoy the sun and the treats you just purchased. Prices are fair!
  • One of the largest under cover markets in Europe. Plenty fresh fruit and vegetables. Plenty of meat chicken etc. Check out the truffle cheese and meats. Store holders where all friendly and between my poor Spanish and hand signals you have no problem communicating. Cheers Jeff
