Handicrafts, gastronomy, toys and fashion share space at the Christmas markets that crowd the streets of Valencia every holiday season. The place to find truly special gifts.
If you are looking for artisanal items to give ‘local’ or take them home with you, stop by the Craft Fair (Feria de Artesanía), located in Plaza de la Reina this year (24th November to 7th January; 10.30am to 2.00pm and 4.30pm to 9.00 pm; open morning hours only on 24 and 31st December; open until midnight on 5th January). Or visit the Colón Market Craft Show (Muestra de Artesanía), inside the market, and find everything from local cuisine to ceramics, jewellery, wood toys and leather goods (13th December to 5th January).
The City of Arts and Sciences returns with its classic Christmas market filled with special gifts; a wide range of culinary offerings provided by food trucks; and demonstrations of traditional trades, including luthier, glassmaker, ceramicist, carpenter and carver.
To avoid the commonplace and find unconventional gifts, Tapinería Market is the place for you. Its vendors will host their own Christmas market, Ho, ho, ho, from 22nd December to 5th January.
The popular Three Kings Market (Mercado de Reyes) returns to the area around Cabanyal Market for last-minute gifts, open 3rd to 5th January. Opening hours are 9.00am to 10.00pm on 3rd and 4th January, and 9.00am to 5.00pm on 5th January.
Come and discover unique products from local trade. From December 15th to January 13th, Coolmarket will be held, a market located at 52 Cirilo Amorós Street, featuring exclusive Valencian fashion and accessory brands. Open every day from 10:30 am to 9:00 pm, except on December 24th, 31st, and January 7th, when the schedule will be from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm. The market will be closed to the public on Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and Epiphany (Three Kings' Day).
Valencia Christmas Market
Circus shows, ice skating, food trucks, and artisan gastronomy: the Valencia Christmas Market is, above all, an authentic Christmas experience.
Located at the sports area of Colegio San Antonio Abad and behind Teatro la PlaZeta, the only thing missing to enjoy a Christmas in pure New York style will be the snow. And all of this without leaving the city of València!
