A huge and fascinating "farmers'" market. Live music outside and another group in the food plaza, where there is an endless variety of tapas, hot dishes, snacks, beer, wine, at least one full bar, and a wonderful variety of non-alcoholic drinks; so you can plan...More

As this building is adjacent to the edge of warren of narrow streets that make up the old town it is worth taking a look inside. Two floors of traders selling mostly fish and meats with the noise and activity you would expect from a...More

The choice is amazing - eat and have a glass wine and move to the next stand....some places have seats. Great meat and seafood to purchase and take home for cooking.

We'd been recommended this by a few people, and left underwhelmed and glad that we hadn't gone out of our way to visit. Good working market, but nothing exceptional.

We visited this market at lunchtime to view all the fantastic fish and fruit and veg stalls, but also to have lunch in the centre, we were not disappointed, the food was excellent, and we were treated to fantastic live music too.

Located next to the river, La Ribera market is a pleasant and wonderful place to sit around and enjoy your pintxos. A great selection of pintxos to choose from all day. In addition, there is a morning market for fresh produce.

I believe the market closes on Sunday. Restaurants are plenty but you may want to eat pintxos and you will find many around different plazas and try Paza Neuovo.

si esta abierto, sin problema pero no podras acceder al resto del edificio solo a la zona de restauracion, a partir de esa hora se empieza a animar.
