Abastos Market from Vitoria

Abastos Market from Vitoria

Dusk falls and Vitoria-Gasteiz awaits you with open arms.

Once you are settled in Apartmnets Diván, give yourself a good plan and head over to the refurbished Plaza de Abastos.

Let yourself be carried from place to place by the aromas of the best fresh products from the fields and farms of Álava or taste them in the gastropubs in the old lavadero, or public washing areas. The visit takes on an even more quaint flavour on Thursday and Saturday mornings due to Álava Farmers’ Market.

The Abastos Market in Vitoria-Gasteiz is the city’s traditional market where locals and visitors come to buy top-quality fresh produce.

Over the years its facilities have also become a place for meeting up, training and leisure.

Consequently, the traditional stalls, which continue to offer the best fresh produce, especially those from the market gardens of Álava, have had eight gastrobars added, where you can taste sample, hamburgers, Mexican food, Italian food, tortillas and sushi.

Since its last refurbishment the Abastos Market now boasts with a training centre, the Abastos Cooking Centre. A project undertaken by the Abastos Foundation that aims to revitalise this space and contribute to the educational assets of our city.

This Kitchen Classroom, located on the top floor, offers ample facilities to develop courses, workshops and other culinary activities. It has 18 places for students to cook and learn and, in front of them, a kitchen and demonstration area for the teachers
