Mercados de Valencia:

Instead of the big supermarkets, try grocery shopping at a local mercado or mercadillo. The produce is usually fresher, more local and tastier than supermarket brands, not to mention cheaper. And, unlike supermarkets, most things won’t be automatically wrapped in plastic, so remember to bring your own bags or containers!
