The temple of food
A true monument to the exterior and the interior dedicated to the best products
The rich and varied cuisine of the Terres de l’Ebre region and its fresh ingredients can almost all be easily found in a single place: Tortosa’s municipal market. The market is the ideal place to find the region’s diverse range of culinary delights with a guarantee of quality.
During our visit to the heart of the city, we can take some time to discover this emblematic Art Nouveau building from the inside. The market acts as a commercial hub right in the middle of Avinguda Generalitat, surrounded by all the stores and other establishments we could possibly need to make our visit complete. From the outside, the market is a wonder to behold, as an imposing building built by Joan Abril and Joan Torras and a square with terraces where we can soak up the midday sun or stop for a rest.
Inside, we are greeted by a wide range of stalls with butchers, greengrocers, bakers, charcuteries, fishmongers and a selection of preserved goods and regional products, as well as bars and restaurants to enjoy a snack or lunch in the midst of the lively atmosphere, noise and colour that is always generated around a market. The stallholders are very friendly people, many of whom have worked their whole lives in the market. They are glad to offer us freshly arrived ingredients including the story behind them.
