Mercado Central is just like a film set, but with wonderful smells of fish cheese meets and spices. You can't miss finding it but best not to try and park near it! If you can't find a spot , just like any other city, its very hard to get back to where you want to be!

It's a beautiful place. But unfortunately just for tourist. Whatever will u try to buy there it will be too expensive, just to squeeze your wallet. Pity. To get the feeling of eating or buying something from a wonderful "classic" market, unfortunately, in my opinion, it's too exxpensive

Great selection of seafood, fruits and veregtables, cheeses by the ton (OK, large kilos) and much more. It would be a really hard choice to make between eating out in Valencia and cooking at home with fresh produce from the market :-)

I wish we had a market like this near us at home. It's got everything, and oh so fresh. It's just a shame we were not self catering as would have loved to fill a kitchen with all sorts of lovely fresh produce.

This has to be one of the greatest experiences in Europe. If you like food, like to be inspired, like dreaming of dishes to create whilst looking at amazing fresh produce - this is the place. It has everything food wise and the sellers are super helpful (If you try a few words of Spanish) Don't leave without a visit.
