Valencia's food market isn't as large as some in other major European cities, but is still well worth a visit. We went quite early so it wasn't overly crowded... also the tour groups just seemed to stand under the main dome in the centre, ie leaving the rest of the market free to easily walk around and view!

You can always find something unique to the area in these markets, and sample regional specialities.

All the food items we saw were beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and the market had a real buzz to it as so many locals were there buying produce... it wasn't just a 'show' market.

A very enjoyable time spent there by us.

Nice building, full of stalls selling fantastic fish and other produce. Buy some freshly prepared bits and pieces for a picnic!

Definitely worth a visit. An amazing array of local produce and all the hams on display are very impressive. A great way to see all the local culinary offerings.
Closes at 3.00 pm.

Its rated top on things to do right now, so you know its worth a visit. Its massive inside, with a huge selection of meats, fish, fruits, nuts& local products. Its worth going to try some of the things on offer. It can be rather busy, but worth seeing. Pretty simple to get to from the City Town Hall or Silk Exchange, few mins walk.
