Shopping or browsing at the Valencia Central Market is an essential Valencia experience. On Plaza del Mercado in the center of town, the massive covered market extends over two floors.
The Modernista-designed market has a quirky angled roof and features stained glass and colored tiles. The market is closed on Sundays but on other days it’s a lively shopping hub with cafes and tapas bars, souvenirs and all manner of fresh produce.
Also on Plaze del Mercado is the 15th century Gothic Lonja, a World Heritage-listed commodity exchange celebrated for its colonnaded hall.
The Plaza del Mercado is in the city center, served by the Angel Guiera and Xativa metro stops.
