Among the famous markets of the world, this one doesn’t get nearly as much fame as it ought to. It’s one of Europe’s oldest markets, specialising mainly in foodstuffs and restaurants. Not knowing any Spanish isn’t going to be a problem; the vendors are all very helpful.
Beef, fish, fruit, Jamon, cheese… it’s all here and cheap as anything. The atmosphere is lively and the scents filling the air are to die for. Do not forget to try the pastries. There are also a few souvenir shops here and there.
- Buses on Calle Botellas

This place is incredible. We visited on our own and were blown away by the range of fresh food on offer. We then went back as part of a tour and that was even better. The most amazing thing for me is that you can book a table at a restaurant just in front of the main gates and can then go and buy your own fresh food, take it back to the restaurant and they will cook it. tailor made eating!
Excellent market. Massive In Size, Super clean. I always judge a market by the smells by the meat and fish displays. Here there is no smell so in my book it's well maintained and clean. The displays and quality of goods are all to a very high standard. It makes one want to live here because it would be super healthy.
The market itself is very beautiful. Avery traditional market from raw veg and meat to ready to eat. The paella stall outside the market has one person sized paella. Love their fish and vegetable with eggs. Fresh and tasty. You can choose eat by the counter or take away. Cheap and joyful!
It is a touristy place however you can find some really tasty fruit and vegetables, dried fruit, nuts, cheese, jams, spices and meats. The stalls usually take card payments so you don't have to worry too much about carrying cash. I'd really recommend trying the cheeses, they are delicious. It's a great place to get some spices or liquor to take home. Also the place looks beautiful from the outside.
This market is very tidy and clean. The seller arrange their things very tidy. No smell from fish or meat. There many kind of food, fruits, nuts, meats, cakes, and fish. The nuts is little bit expensive though. In this market, there is also an oyster seller. You can buy it for 2.5 euro for the small one, and 3 euro for the bigger one. It's nice, although it's expensive. Hopefully I can come back again to buy more things.
