I love my food markets and I found one around the corner from where I am staying in Bilbao.
Mercado de la Ribera is supposed to be the biggest covered market in Europe. How did I not know this existed?
Anyway I stumbled in this market because it is near my hotel and I was hot and looking to cool down.
Once entering I noticed at least two levels of fresh goods. Many stalls were closed but it could have been a the time of day that I visited. There was no lack of goods for shoppers.
I’m a traveler with no kitchen so what I really needed was the tapas food court located on the second floor.
There are so many different tapas choices that it might not be a bad idea to visit multiple times to try all you wish to try.

Great post 🙂
I think I was in pintxos heaven when I visited here…there was so much choice! I didn’t realise there were two floors…I can’t believe I missed the other floor!
I think there is only one floor with the pintxos. The two floors are for the market (fish, olives, meats, etc)
