In each of the cities and towns we have visited we visit the central market, always a hub of activity and fresh food the Mercat Central de Valencia is not exception. It is considered one of the oldest markets in Europe that still running. According tourist information the market began as an outdoor market on this site around 1839. Construction of the current building in 1928 it is over 8000 square meters, and home to about 400 traders. Below are just some of the items for sale, and some interior images of the market. We spent about two hours wandering between stalls, checking out the food items and the beautiful building.
of course always available but not shown, fresh beef, horse, lamb, poultry, pork, fish, and seafood. There were just too many photos to show them all in one blog post.
