Mercado Central de Atarazanas Reviews
The fresh food from this covered market is great. There are stands that cook tapas for you to take away as well. more »
Love the atmosphere of the market, great to sit outside and people watch even if you are on a main road. Tables very close together, service quick and efficient and food always fresh. more »
Amazing place to get fresh vegetables, fruits, fishes, meats.. Its worth visiting even to look at all those different types of food. People are also so pleasant and nice! It's great place to stock on Spanish spices also.
This market is awesome. 15 years ago it was really old, but after renovation it looks nice and it still kept its flair. No need to talk about the stuff that is sold there. Fresh, yummy and "barato".
