New food market opens in Valencia
After a lengthy restoration, Valencia's new gastronomic market opens. Built in 1904 and operating until 2000, the building that was the headquarters of the famous Vila family printing house will now become a new place to visit for residents and visitors of Valencia.
This space, divided into 2 floors, occupies the premises of the family printing house built by Vicente Cerda. Despite its size and beauty, the fact that it is hidden between houses has allowed it to remain a mysterious and attractive place to this day.
During the reconstruction, all the elements of elegant architecture were preserved (the structure, the imperial staircase, iron columns, wooden ceilings and, of course, the facade). Inside, you will see huge palm trees and large handwritten signs, like the scenery for a classic movie. An entourage that will definitely be remembered by visitors to the new market.
By the way, this market is not the only one in Spain (San Miguel in Madrid and Mercado de Correos in Murcia). The places are popular due to the rich cultural program, which includes exhibitions, workshops, tastings, etc. The Valencian gastronomic market has an area of almost 2.000 square meters, while the building itself looks incredibly beautiful and majestic due to its architecture.
