Mercado de San Miguel information
One of Madrid’s oldest and most beautiful markets, the Mercado de San Miguel has undergone a stunning major renovation and bills itself as a ‘culinary cultural centre’. Within the early-20th-century glass walls, the market has become an inviting space strewn with tables. You can order tapas and sometimes more substantial plates at most of the counter bars, and everything here (from caviar to chocolate) is as tempting as the market is alive.
