Mercado San Miguel, Madrid

4.0
#1 of 88 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. Work out when and for how long to visit Mercado San Miguel and other Madrid attractions using our handy Madrid itinerary maker.

    Central and typical Madrid market. Recycled. To pass at least once during your visit to Madrid. Covers the best beer Chuck cider, and typical foods. Friendly atmosphere. I love it.

    The market of bonito has several options for feeding. You can try a lot of good stuff! It is a very busy place.

  • This place is incredible! I have no idea how I got there, and part of me is convinced that it's magic - only showing up when you absolutely need it. And I was hungry, so I needed it. I'm pretty sure I could google to find out where it is (which is exactly what you should do), but I don't want to. Let the magic live on. Anyway, It really comes alive at night, and is absolute buzzing with people on the weekends. It has a very modern feel to it, which was a nice change of pace from the rest of central Madrid. It has all the food and desserts you could want, filled with a high-energy crowd. Definitely check it out.
  • Love this place! So many different types of foods and drinks available in one spot. Every single thing I've tried here has been AMAZING. Remember to keep your food or drink receipt if you need to use the restroom. It's your free ticket in. The one thing that I would recommend is either fans or a mist machine. On warm days, there is no air ventilation and it feels similar to a sauna! Especially with the various food cooking and the crowd of people.
  • This market has become more of a tourist destination than anything else. That being said, the market is really nice, very clean and organized, even though it is always crowded, it is nice to walk around and see what it has to offer. The majority of vendors are food stalls and they all look amazing. We didn't eat anything because we had just already eaten. It sits right behind the Plaza Mayor in a nice recovered glass building.
  • The fruit stand was disappointing as we were expecting better selection and the prices were high but the food choices all looked great. A lot of seafood to choose from and alcohol was in abundance. We took some food to go which was quite good and not expensive. Looks like a great place to meet friends as everyone eats and drinks what they want. However it was very loud and there is limited seating.
  • Shew where does a good lover dessert queen and lover of fine cuisine start. This is an upmarket very vibey place. Its a place to be seen at???? If u know what I mean. It is awesome. From fresh produce to ready made tapas desserts sweets etc. What's not to love here. A must see if visiting Madrid. Its very near to the main plaza square.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
