We went to visit the Mercado and really enjoyed the environment and what was being offered for sale. If we lived in Valencia we would definitely visit often to pick up our meats, fruits and vegetables. It is a great place to bring visitors!

I guess this is something to organize yourself as it remains a market and with that it's likely not to be a store where goods can be put aside to ship later that day. But you can always give it a try
