For actually buying food I would go here. It has everything of the central market but cheaper. It is a bit of a walk but the area is really interesting. A lovely lady in the middle of the market sells some of the best paella I've had. Nice coffee stall too. Less busy too.

This is the local market in the barrio Ruzafa. Full with locals that are discussing the problems and tell stories to each other. Nice places to have breakfast or lunch arround the market as well.

We just came from the main market, and compared to that this is quaint. Lots of produce, and nice and organized. It's also in a nice neighbourhood!

Smaller and not as charming as the more famous Cantral Market but still very nice. Not in a touristic area so it's "the real thing". I found here the "chufas" to make horchata at home, at a fraction of the price of the street vendors in touristic places.

I like this market. Interesting building (retro) and prices better than the Centro Mercado. Great coffee supplier who roasts her own beans and knows what she is talking about. As a coffee freak I like this and this is the only specialist supplier I have found in Valencia.

In the middle of a newly trendy, hipster and exciting neighborhood lies an amazing market. Not as big as Mercado Central, but offers just as much or even more. Produce is fresh and very well priced, lots of places to get souvenirs or canned and jarred food, meat and fresh seafood.I noticed more locals than tourist shopping here.

Called in at this market on my travels through Ruzafa. Ruzafa is in the old part of the city but this is a more modern market and does not have the grand appearance of the central market (Plaça del Mercado). It is however a quality market with brut ugly displayed food which is good quality. The fish stalls are a... More

Great market - similar to the Mercado Central but on a smaller scale without the grand building and the tourists
