MESTALLA FLEA MARKET
An opportunity to bathe in the experience of a local flea market in Valencia takes place nearly every Sunday just off Blasco Ibanez. Stands are squeezed into an open space under the shadow of the Mestalla soccer stadium. They offer everything from wonderfully unrecognisable and tacky objects to large pieces of furniture.
Naturally many dealers attempt to achieve the highest deal possible with foreigners, especially since the market is also frequented by tourists. Lovers of the hunt for bargains or quirky items can, however, often be successful.

EL CORTE INGLÉS
One supermarket stands out in Valencia for two reasons. El Corte Inglés is situated centrally on the Calle Colón and, fortunately for some, the store is open on Sundays. This branch of the well known department store chain has a supermarket in the basement.
The store boasts an extensive selection of produce for sale. Fresh produce is available as are many exclusive brands. Several international products can also be found. Even an alternative to the limited variety of toilet paper!
