The Mercado Central occupies a large covered area in the very heart of Valencia and is one of the oldest European markets, functioning since Medieval times. This market is very popular with locals as well as tourists which means there is a broad range of fresh produce with only a small number of stalls offering tourist goods.
The authenticity of this market is the very reason why you should visit it. The sheer variety of fruit and fish on offer will leave you pining for a hearty lunch which you could take in one of the on-site restaurants. As always with these kinds of establishments, people watching can be rather entertaining and it offers a nice break from the heat pouring down outside.
