Traditional dishes: between the Mediterranean and the Sierra de Espadán mountain range

Arroz al horno
Arroz al horno

In addition to Valencian paella, there are other dishes of Mediterranean influence such as arroz del senyoret, fideuà or baked rice, also called “arròs passejat”. This “arroz paseado” is so called in the Valencian territory because, as it was not very common in the past to have an oven at home, people used to prepare it and take it to the bread oven to cook it, “walking” it around the village.

This dish, which is one of the tastiest rice dishes in the Levant, was traditionally made with the leftovers from the stew, using the leftover meat, chickpeas, potatoes and broth. It is therefore a truly humble dish that is currently very popular with rice lovers.

Gastronomy in popular festivals

As well as the typical “xocolatà” and sobaquillo dinners, coca de tomata, which in Vall d’Uixó is common to find uncovered, or the typical barrets de tomata (tomato pasties) are traditional dishes that are widely consumed in our popular festivals.

However, the dish par excellence of Vallera gastronomy that cannot be missed on the table at any fiesta is the classic “empedrao“. This is a hearty stew made with pork, rice, mashed beans and game meat, especially rabbit or hare.

Slightly lighter is the classic “caldereta de bou“, a delicious stew of bull’s meat also known in other localities as “tombet de bou”. It is also made with potatoes, vegetables such as carrots and onions, wine and spices such as paprika and bay leaf. This stew is traditionally prepared for Vall d’Uixó’s main festivities held in August: Les Penyes en Festes.

A little sweet to finish


Another delicacy, in this case sweet, prepared to celebrate saints’ days, baptisms, communions, weddings and local festivals are the “manjòvenes“. These typical sweets of Muslim heritage are hollow doughnuts covered with sugar. They are also known as “rotllets de mica”.

Other sweet dishes include ‘panellets‘, ‘prims en figues‘, ‘coca de llanda‘ or ‘coca mal feta’, ‘coca de vidre‘ and the widely known ‘coca de tomata‘, in this case uncovered, which is prepared on a dough made with flour, water, oil and beer.

The Municipal Market

But if we talk about gastronomy, it is essential to mention the Municipal Market, one of the nerve centres of our city.

edificio mercado
Interior del Mercado Municipal de la Vall d'Uixó

Opening hours:

  • Monday to Thursday:  7h- 14h.
  • Friday: from 9h to 15h and from 17h to 20h.
  • Saturday:  7h-14h.

This building, although recently refurbished, dates from 1975 and covers 4,000 m2. With two floors of commercial activity, here you can find all kinds of local products: fruit and vegetables, salted and canned foods, fresh meat and fish, and even gourmet products. Visitors can shop here while benefiting from the personalised and friendly service of the professionals.

Taking advantage of new technologies, a 24-hour click&collect point has also been installed. These refrigerated lockers are located outside the building and are used to collect online purchases. There is therefore the possibility of making purchases at the Municipal Market via the website www.compralavallduixo.es and then collecting them at these refrigerated lockers outside business hours.

But this place, apart from being a very important commercial centre for the city, is also an authentic example of urban art. Thus, in the fish market area you can admire various works by local artist and architect Jairo Manuel Paulo Maireles.

Weekly Market

It is also worth mentioning the weekly non-sedentary market which takes place every Friday from 8am to 3pm. This itinerant market, which is held in the Plaza del Mercado, has more than 200 stalls that attract a large number of curious onlookers and shoppers. It is the second most important street market in the province, where you can find a wide range of products: from fresh food to textiles, accessories and footwear.
