There are a limited number of shops at Valencia Airport. The large duty free Aldeasa shop is the main place with Thinking Espana supplementing the goods it stocks with more local Valencian and Spanish foodstuffs, arts and crafts and souvenirs.
All of the shops are in the departures lounge, and the only retail outlet in the public area (apart from the pharmacy) is the News and Books shop which stocks a good range of books, magazines and newspapers in several languages where you can pick up something to read on your flight.
The farmacia is a dispensing chemist and can supply prescription drugs (if they have them in stock) as well as items like aspirin, creams, flu powders, etc. The pharmacists in Spain are very different to those in the UK and will give advice on minor ailments although it is not an official diagnosis.
The two main stores are open from the first to last flight and close overnight for about eight hours so don't bank on them being open all the time.
Also remember that when purchasing duty free goods the cashier will ask to see your boarding pass to check that you are entitled to do so.
