Mercado Del Val

The most famous market in Valladolid is the Mercado del Val, a typical castillan agricultural market. Built in the late nineteenth-century, this covered market is frequented by locals all day long until late at night. Stalls sell everything from fish to flowers and suckling pigs. It is located on Plaza del Val.


Shopping in Valladolid might not be to the scale of bigger cities like Madrid, but it remains a pleasant experience, with many options, enough food shopping available to keep the sugar level high, cute shops - all of which in mostly pedestrian streets. The main shopping street of Valladolid is Calle de Santiago, which runs between Plaza Mayor and Plaza de Zorrilla. To the East of Calle de Santiago lies Calle Mantería which is a pedestrianized walkway featuring shoes, clothes, cakes and many other delightful things. The big brands tend to cluster on Paseo de Zorrilla, on the western flank of Campo Grande, and you can for example find the famous El Corte Inglés in this zone.
