Really huge. Nothing this huge and diverse like it in Toronto Canada. Lots of meat, which didn't sit well with the vegetarians I'm traveling with. You need to go to see the wealth of food available to us.

Billed as one of the biggest covered markets in Europe an they are not wrong . A must for anyone interested in food (it is huge) and if you are not the building itself wonderful. Open Monday - Saturday - closes at 15.00.

A large and nice covered food market, great produce. We decided to buy stuff for a picnic; this gave us a focus for looking at the countless cheese, meats and fruit stands. If the traders see you are a buyer they will let you taste produce. Was fun.

Fabulous display of Valencian produce. Magnificent building. Take a big bag to stock up, and your camera for all the colour.

It is in the center of the city and we spent around an hour visiting most of the stalls/shops in the market.

I'm not really enthusiastic about this place, but maybe because I already visited other market in Spain that I consider better.

Thankfully the size and height of this market means your senses are not too assaulted by the vast array of fish and meat produce on display! The colours and variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs, spices etc is staggering. A place to browse for at least an hour or two - you can pick up fresh juices or fruit... More
