FRESH FOOD MARKETS Valencia's markets are fully functioning places of trade, where you can watch the hustle and bustle of daily life, the colours of the fruit and vegetables, hear the cries of the stall holders peddling their wares... Whether you would like to pick up some souvenirs to bring back for your loved ones, buy the makings of a picnic or simply soak up the Valencia atmosphere, the following markets are an integral part of the holiday experience: MERCADO CENTRAL Valencia’s Central Market is one of the biggest and oldest running fresh-produce markets in Europe and one of the city’s finest examples of Modernist architecture. You should walk around during the morning and feel its nice atmosphere, the smells and colours. The quality of the food is outstanding, although it might be more expensive than in other local markets. However, I recommend doing your groceries there once during your stay. Address: Plaza del Mercado, 6. Valencia. MERCADO DEL CABAÑAL In the beach area, is one of the city’s best known markets. For more than 50 years it has been selling fresh produce and is especially well known for the quality of its fish and seafood. In the stalls surrounding the market fresh fruit and vegetables are sold. Address: Calle Marti Grajales, 4. Valencia MERCADO DE COLÓN Colon’s market is an old market hall converted into a commercial area. The modernist style building was restored in 2003 and since then it has hosted many cultural activities. Today you can find restaurants, bars and cafés such as Horchatería Daniel, traditionally known for making a very good “Orxata”. Address: Calle Jorge Juan, 19. Valencia MERCADO DE RUZAFA The Mercado de Ruzafa is one of Valencia’s newest markets (was built in 1957). It has become an essential part of Ruzafa’s life (Ruzafa is the new hip neighbourhood of Valencia, where I live). There are 160 stalls where you can buy all types of delicacies, and what sets this market apart from the rest is how it perfectly combines the activity occurring both inside and outside of the building. Address: Plaza Barón de Cortes, Valencia

An amazing and historical site, you can go to see the places or buy something, you have to see it.
Impressive building of Modernist style. The food stalls inside are a pleasure for the senses.
