One of the only times we visit Valencia during the day and endure the pulsating heat is to visit the food market in Valencia which opens from 7am - 3pm. We start off with churro's and chocolate a big favourite of mine. Thin hot doughnuts dipped into warm thick chocolate, they also do a gorgeous freshly squeezed Valencian orange juice.
The building is a shrine to all things edible, and even the building is stunning.
Plenty of olives to choose from
Pimenton used in a lot of Spanish cooking
Dried fruits and nuts
Varieties of snails
Plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables

As the temperature reaches a staggering 36 degrees we head back to the house and a dip in the pool
