Beautiful stain glass on each side of market place. Although market was closed when we were there the pinto places abound with great food and drink. We especially liked the Cava and Spanish Chardonnay

Well worth a visit to join local shoppers find their bargains in the traditional market place. Make sure you visit the upper floor which gets even more authentic. Lots of local produce

Good range of pinxtos available from a number of outlets. Busy and vibrant place. Nice place to graze and have a few bites at different stands. Worth a visit.

I visited here with my grandma a couple of weeks ago. The market is really nice if you’re looking for food or pinxtos but for those looking for non-food type stalls this isn’t the market for you. I probably should have looked it up before...More

The upper story is dedicated to a market filled with fish, raw meat, and produce while half of the lower story has numerous cafe/ tapas restaurants to get your fix of “Pintxos” (bite size or small plates of traditional foods).

A very large indoor market. There is also an impressive multi-bar section with mouth-watering pintxos. Popular and busy at lunchtime.

Many of the vendors were closed, particularly fish. There was an array of meat processed and raw, but clientele were thin on the ground. Maybe because it was Monday morning. Not worth a visit.

Hi, The market is open Mon-Fri: 08:00-14:00 & 17:00-19:00 Sat: 8:00-14:30 But check once in Bilbao as those might be summer opening times. You want good restaurants? I could not recommend any. I just went to pintxos bars... More
