Tour Details

Choose the ingredients for your Valencian lunch

On this tour you’ll get the full experience of buying and tasting products at Mercat Central just like a local! Typically, Valencians will buy their fish from the fishmongers early in the morning, ensuring that they have the biggest selection possible! Options at this place include sardines, anchovies, cuttlefish, squids, clams, golden breams, red mullet, ray, prawns, sea urchins, and much more!

You will be able to pick your choice of fresh seafood caught straight from the Mediterranean Sea and bought from the auction house all on the same day! You will have an assortment included in the price of the tour and have a satisfying lunch, but you are more than welcome to include other personal choices that catch your eye while shopping at the market. While we continue with the gastronomic and cultural tour of the market, your fish selection will be taken to a local restaurant nearby, where they will cook the way you desire.
