Meat, Fish, Spices, Nuts but for us especially the fruit & veg. Everything is so fresh and its fund to watch the locals buying their weekend dinner.

There are lots of places to visit in Valencia but Mercado Central is a must! Hundreds of stalls, lots of things to look at, to choose from, to enjoy. And what a great place for photography lovers!
