Many visitors to Bilbao wrongly tend to see the city as a one-stop wonder (i.e. the Guggenheim Museum). But the bustling Mercado de la Ribera, the city’s main food market, is a delicious antidote to all of that cutting edge architecture and art. Housed in a handsome 1930's building on the edge of the Casco Viejo, or Old City, this covered market is a lively, colorful, fragrant testament to this city’s love of good food. It is a great place to shop for edible souvenirs or grab a snack.
