Markets say a lot about a place. Come and explore Aldaia’s town market and see what this part of Horta Oest is all about.

Mercado de Aldaia in Valencia is a must-visit if you’re keen to experience what life is like in a typical Mediterranean town. The market is full of colourful and fragrant stalls that will you away with the incredible range of products on offer.

The stallholders are the best people to ask when it comes to choosing what to buy. And what a choice you have! Mercado Municipal de Aldaia has stalls purveying everything from nuts, preserves and seafood to fruit and vegetables, meat, charcuterie and more. Nestled among the stalls, there are eateries where you can order homemade traditional dishes to take away.

Aldaia is known for its artisan-made fans, a fashion accessory that have been used for centuries. During your time in the town you therefore simply have to visit MUPA, Museu del Palmito d'Aldaia, a museum that will tell you everything you need to know about the history of fans and their importance for the local economy. You should also stop by Casa de la Llotgeta, a 16th century house, and the 14th century cistern that is located next to the council building. La Anunciación parish church is another sight you won’t want to miss before you head to the market to browse all the produce on display. Put the market on your to-visit list for Aldaia and savour the traditional flavours, taste quality produce and soak up the bustling atmosphere.
