Do you want to know where to shop in Valencia?
One of the activities we can do when we visit Valencia is to go shopping. Wickerwork, nougats or Lladró sculptures are just some of the things you can take home with you as a souvenir of our city. Here we invite you to visit different areas of the city and take the opportunity to find those items. Let’s get started!
Plaza Redonda and surroundings
The round square, one of the most famous places in Valencia. It is an unquestionably unique location very close to the cathedral. Most important are the shops that you will find in the square, which sell traditional and artisan products. On Sundays we will also find a street market: stamps, coins, stickers, etc.
You can find old ceramics shops, as well as the world famous Lladró shop. Besides, you will probably find some women gathered in the square sewing or making bobbin lace. Can you imagine anything more traditional?
If you want to recharge your batteries during your shopping session, you can find some bars in the same square where you can have a “pintxo ” or a tapa. Enjoy the scenery, it is undoubtedly one of our favourites!
OPENING HOURS: Monday to Saturday from 10:00 hours to 20:00 hours. Holidays from 8:00 hours to 14:00 hours.
The alternative district of the city. Here you will find many second-hand and vintage style stores, as well as brands like Gnomo, with super original shops.
This district does not sleep, you will find everything you need and a multitude of terraces where you can stop to rest and have a drink. If you are looking for a charming market, local and much smaller than the Central Market of Valencia, make a stop at the Ruzafa neighborhood market, you will be surprised by its life and all it has to offer.
Mercado Central de Valencia (Central Market):
The perfect place to shop for typical city produce. This modernist building is a must-see for shopping lovers, both for its great gastronomic offer and for its architectural appeal.
And if you need to stop and regain some strength, inside the market there is a BAR, opened by Michelin-starred chef Ricard Camarena. Don’t forget to stop by and try some cod fritters! We love them!
OPENING HOURS: from 7:00 to 15:00, Monday to Saturday.
Calle de las Cestas (Basketwork street):
A classic of the city. The real name of the street is Calle Músico Peyró, but it is known all over the world as Calle de las Cestas because the street is full of shops that sell traditional esparto grass baskets and other types of furniture and ornaments made with the same technique. The shops in the area have common business hours.
You will find the most exclusive shops in this street. Lladró, Louis Vuiton or the famous Durán watch shop are some of the stores you will find in this luxurious street. Prepare your credit card, you will need it.
