Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy the  Mercat Central of Valencia as the locals do: tasting and buying their products directly from the vendors! Many groups of Valencian friends traditionally have the habit of approaching their fishmongers early in the morning to get the  freshest Mediterranean fish of the day!
With me as your local guide, you will 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! After people select what they like, they can take it to a nearby bar to have them cook it to their desired taste. Usually, the meal is enjoyed mid-day with great wine and close friends. You will be able to try this authentic experience for yourself!The tour also includes product tastings and a gastronomic and cultural tour of the market. After our time at the market, I'll guide you around the beautiful surrounding neighborhood. Lastly, a good table on a sunny terrace awaits you at the end of the tour with your prepared fish, a glass of wine and the perfect Valencian atmosphere. Ideal For...First-time visitors to Valencia, enthusiasts of agritourism and nature, foodies on holiday and those who enjoy a nice glass of wine and good company
