##Hidden within the old town of Valencia, lies the modern vibrant ‘Mercado de Tapineria’. The trendy market square is a contrast to the quaint architecture enclosing it. Decorated in bright colourful bunting and wrapped up in tall white buildings, the urban environment is a must-see.
If you are looking for somewhere to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre but still be able to soak up the sounds and sights of a busy market square, then ‘Mercado de Tapineria’ is the place for you. With a chilled busyness vibe, it is the perfect place to visit at the weekend allowing you to unwind from the working week while still engaging with the metropolitan atmosphere Valencia has to offer.
Mercado de Tapineria is home to 3 Gastro spaces and 2 Ephemeral stores, providing you with plenty of options to find the food and items you love but not overwhelming you with the endless choice of busy market stalls. Browse the stores as you smell the fresh coffee and tasty market food that is waiting for you at the end of your shop.
It’s okay if one week you don’t find anything you love at one of the stores, some change each week…catering for you with plenty of choice and small independent businesses to support. You can stay up-to-date on their website to make sure you never miss the perfect shop for you!
