We ate there for breakfast a lot of times. A real interesting place to visit. You will see all types of Spanish foods. Think fresh.

This is the most beautiful market I have seen in Europe - or anywhere I have been actually. The building itself is stunning (look up when you are inside) and the variety of food took my breath away. We have friends in Valencia and they shop here - wish it was my local market but I might get very fat!

The central market has recently been refurbished so after you have taken in the outside go in and look up at the inside decoration. Don't forget to look up at the the ceiling.
As for the quality, selection and variety of the vegetables, herbs, nuts, spices, fruit, charcuterie, fish and meat I haven't seen anything better in Paris, Barcelona, Madrid or London (Borough Market).

Great way to get a taste of Valencian foods. So many kinds of fruit and fish and herbs. And beside all of the food don't forget to view the great building that the market is in. Look up as well.
