It’s fully open now and the ground floor ready-to-eat section works really well. Order at one of the many outlets (Maltese, sushi, BBQ etc) then find a table. A beeper will let you know when your food is ready. It’s fine to mix starters and...More

In the week leading up to Christmas the numbers for the stalls are engraved around the open air opera site but there is no market.This is apparently due to considerable building work around the bus station.

Lovely street as with so much of the streets of Valletta. Didn't notice any market but has several interesting shops and worth a nice stroll down.

Not sure where the market should be or maybe it's placed somwhere else, but this street is a beauty for itself. Parallel to the Republic street, but much less crowded, it goes all the way through Valletta, and has some nice shops along the way.
