Pinxtos!

Great place to have lunch and not too crowded either. The pinxtos were excellent as well as the wine choices.

Even if prices here are a bit higher than the normal pintxos bar, the quality is outstanding and the atmosphere very pleasant.

It is amazing, particularly for us from UK, to see so much fresh produce on display. It is not as big as some other markets but still plenty to sample and take back. Lots of opportunities to eat and drink while there too.

I visited the Ribera Market last month while I was in the city and I have to say it was a great experience. A market full of fresh goods, fish, meats and fruits! Well worth my time. I was amazed by how beautiful and yummy everything looked in there. I had lunch and also bought some cold cuts of meat... More

The market itself is interesting but a bit clinical compared to the one in Barcelona, for example. Beautifully stained glass windows at the top but it's been refurbished and that has removed some of the character. The bar and snack area is really well worth a visit - plenty of choice and places to sit, watching the world go by.

La Ribera Market is really two markets. There is the fresh food market and also a "food court" where there are several different vendors offering paella, a variety of tapas, and drinks. Great place for a family.
