The Mercat Central de Valencia is, without a doubt, one of the places not to be missed during your holiday in the beautiful city. For many, considered the real soul of the city!
In a blaze of smells, colors, and tastes, you will literally be kidnapped by the largest market in the Valencian Community. With almost 1000 counters of fresh produce, in modern architecture, the Mercat Central de Valencia offers an endless variety of food and drink. It is a place particularly loved by citizens and, of course, by foreign visitors.
Here, you will find the best fruit and vegetables, coming from the Valencian Huerta, that is, an area of agricultural lands south of Valencia. And, of course, genuine meats and salami, among which the Salamanca hams, and very fresh fish, stand out, with stalls that offer real ‘crustacean’ waterfalls: a pleasure for all the senses.
A place that makes the innovative character one of the strengths. It is, in fact, the first market in the world to face the challenge of the computerization of sales and home delivery.
In the market, more than 400 small traders are hosted. There are also bars and restaurants inside. Furthermore, interesting events and exhibitions are often organized.
The Mercat Central de Valencia is located in Plaza Ciudad de Brujas, right in the center, not far from the beautiful Lotja de la Seda. You can easily walk, walking through the alleys of the Old City. The 7, 27 and 73 bus lines stop right in front of the Market entrance. All the info on Valencia and how to get around, are available at this link, in our special page dedicated to the city.
Open from Monday to Saturday, from 07:00 to 15:00. Closed on Sundays.
The market stands out, as mentioned, for its various fresh products. You’ll find a little bit of everything. To taste absolutely delicious juices prepared with fruit blended at the moment, or, the Jamon. We recommend arriving for breakfast or lunch time.
