We very very impressed with the quality & variety of stalls, all selling fresh fruit & Veg, fish, meat, cheese olives etc. Very well priced. Even if you don't need to buy anything great atmosphere & some excellent Tapas bars inside.

Very nice spot for a quick lunch as you do your grocery shopping. Small tables outside or you can eat at the counter. On the menu: paella, tart, shelfish, cured meats... Wines, sangria... Better to speak Spanish, but you will be able to find someone to translate.

Lovely food market with principally local fresh food and drink. Surrounded by great tapas bars for a tasty snack. Very lively, bustling atmosphere right in the centre of town.

We enjoyed walking through this market and seeing all the different food and drink stalls. Loads of locals and there is a great hussle and bustle as you'd expect of a market. We liked sampling the food and drink like a local! We got fruit and break for our lunch and it was cheap. A great experience.

The market itself is clean and the building interesting. We were visiting after lunch and although there were plenty of stalls open it lacked the busy atmosphere I enjoy in a traditional market.

historically the market at this place dates back to 14th century (sic!). Nowadays it's a great place for shopping quality local products. Most stalls also provide vacuum packing so if you plan to buy some jamon, chorizo or cheese to take it home, this is a place for you. Just remember that it's closed on Sundays and on other days...

Each section had its stall types - Carne, Seafood, and then fruits and vegetables. Each stall had so much in it and it was definitely fun to wonder through. Come ready to eat or try things. We were still full on breakfast so we didn't buy anything which is now disappointing in retrospect. We should have at least taken some... More

This market is wonderful. You will find everything. From fruits and vegetables to fish, olives, meat, sweets, you name it! My favorite? The almonds! Wow. Don't miss the almonds! This is a great place to buy food on the fly, if you want to continue your visit of the city. It is worth the visit!
