#1 of 141 in Shopping in Madrid
Built in 1913 and massively renovated in 2009, Mercado San Miguel attracts visitors with its famous tapas, though there’s much more to try here, from fine caviar to delicious chocolate snacks. This indoor market is part culinary tourist attraction, part cultural center, located in the very heart of the city. Whether you’re looking to buy something specific or just browsing the tempting stalls, it’s worth a stop for the sights and smells of dried ham, fine wine, baked goodies, and other treats offered by the vendors. The entrance is easily identifiable by its ornate iron posts. Discover how to plan a Madrid trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

  • There’s a wide variety of foods you can try so it’s worth going, but keep in mind that being a really touristic place, the prices are a bit inflated.  more »
  • Didn't have much time to spend here but did wander through so much husband could have a look at his second European market. Beautiful building and hope to return one day!  more »
  • This is a market constructed from iron. It is just beautiful with glass windows and very well kept. There are many stalls with fruits, meats, veggies, and produce.  more »

  • Bustling food market with an amazing variety of food and drink! We had a lovely time just soaking in the atmosphere and sampling some of the finest Spanish cuisine. The crowd seemed pretty manageable on a Friday morning with ample standing room around the perimeter of the market. We'd be happy to come back again!
  • A feast for the eyes, mouth, and ears. This place is nothing short of a senses overload. Amazingly laid out with tapas style counters dotted along one section, fruit and sweets along another, and the occasional beer and drinks taps lining the outer seating areas. Whilst being very clean and orderly considering the popularity, obviously rent comes high and thus some of the food can be expensive.
  • I loved the atmosphere the place is filled with the aroma of delicious food with locals and tourists enjoying their food and each other's company. The locals are extremely welcoming and very friendly. The food here was excellent! Small portions so you can try many different things at a variety of prices. Some of the food is already prepared while others are made fresh right in front of you. Most of the tables are standing tables but there are some stools scattered about. We will definitely be going back again.
  • Very vibrant market that's super close to the Plaza Mayor. Definitely worth a tourist visit as you check out the livelihood of the Spanish marketers in air conditioning. Be careful of your stuff though, as it gets real crowded real quick. Tapas for 1-1.5 euros, burgers for 2 euros, and drinks for 2.5 euros. Definitely a must visit when you're here! While you're here, do check out the corner seafood stall that has a huge swordfish!
  • I love this place. We live in Madrid and choose it for a stop on our nights out. Getting to try a bit of everything is fun whilst sipping a drink. It does get super crowded on the weekends, butt it’s because it’s awesome.
