Create an itinerary including Mercado San Miguel
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.

  • I had calamares sandwich, crab cakes, tapas (salmon and cod) and estrella beer. Maybe not the best price but the variety of food available under one roof is amazing. There's olives, pork, seafood...

  • This mercado is smaller than we expected and it is PACKED with people on a Sunday afternoon. Our group of 7 had a great time here for a couple hours. There's tons of tapas you can choose from each...

  • Great modern building with lots of different stalls. You’ll see lots of people raving about how great this place is for food, drink and atmosphere. Yes, it’s great, but it’s also catering for the tourist and some locals too. If you’re after an authentic experience then head to a local place but for convince and just everything under one roof, then this is a must tick off. Most tapas and food range between €2 to €20 euro. A pint of beer cost me €8. You can basically have your dinner here as you will be stuffed! We came at night and it was great as it wasn’t as busy as it would be during the day time.
  • A must for any tourist. Very cute market place with a variety of food and drink selections. Lines are not long to purchase your food and it tastes fresh. I very much enjoyed the plentiful of indoor seating options. Great place to go and get a quick small bite to eat or buy fruits, fish, meat to take home.
  • What a magical space. Enchanting outdoor environment full of delicious fresh food and drinks. The staff in each kiosk were so pleasant and eager to serve. We enjoyed a variety of different food and beverages that met our every desire. Being able to experience so much in one area was a blessing for us as we were famished from our flight and ready to dive in to the culture of Madrid! Can’t rate this experience great enough.
  • Loved stopping here for food. What a unique experience. Why don't we have this in the states? Totally hip vibe with great wine or beers to choose from. Love olives? There is a station just for that. Love fried bacon, they have it! My only regret was not wearing elastic pants.
  • Absolutely gorgeous and trendy spot! Yes it's super touristy but totally worth it. The drinks are touristy with selections like sangria, a drink the locals don't really drink and they're all upcharged. The tapas are separately priced when usually you receive free tapas with an order at a local spot. Although the drinks and food options are both tasty you'll find your best meals and drink outside in the local bars. Definitely something you have to see once or twice during your stay. Definitely cute and Definitely had a great time though.
