We came here expecting more gift shops / independent shops. The building was lovely, the upstairs more beautiful than the downstairs.

Apparently this building was falling into disrepair when it was rescued and gentrified. Houses cafes and restaurants which have a somewhat false feel to them (I prefer somewhere more authentic) and a market.
Despite my reservations, there is no denying the beauty of the building.
Easy walk across the Bridge of flowers over the Turia riverbed from the market

Lovely building which has been beautifully restored and repurposed. Busy location with a good selection of bars and cafes, where you can eat and drink while admiring the location.

This is the yuppie food market, that is more about restaurants then market stalls. The central market is a better choice if you are looking for a real market.
