  • Very nice place for a walk. There are a variety of things. A lot of see food. A lot of delicious things to taste. There's do is for everyone. The prices are reasonable. The staff is friendly. The merchants as well. In the heart of the town near other important places that should be seen.
  • What a market should be... Food speaks out to you, your eyes restlessly wandering from one stall to the next with excitement and fascination. Exquisite architecture which is pleasing to the eye. It a visit worth taking the time to see. You can get a nice tapas here. Thriving with life and busy wth locals and tourists.
  • Despite all tour guides might recommend you, it's Not for tourists.. There are no cooked meals or restaurants there. Only fresh produce.. So only good for locals. Good luck with the fish smell.
  • This is a stunning view of Spanish life. The market teems with character. Every stall tell of the food obsession here in Spain. No part of animal or vegetable appears to be of no use. Everything is available and spectacular in its display. The bakery stall we chose supplied us with a feast for breakfast. A truly splendid place to wander.
  • Great place for a variety of items. Lots of fresh fish, meats and veggies along with pre made food, flowers, spices and almost anything you would need to cook or bake. Prices vary so check each stall and ask for samples or to see and taste what you are getting. Can easily spend an entire day wandering around and having fun.
