Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 13,000+ reviews on the web
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.

  • It is a food market, you can find covers everything: ham, cheese and seafood. There are sweets, wine, sangria etc. And tables to eat standing or high banks. The bad thing is that it is very expensive. You pay much more than if you go to a good restaurant. It attractive is that the jobs and the environment is of party.

  • Fantastic place, more of a huge pinxtos feast than a Market Well designed so you can easily pick out whatever you fancy from a mouthwatering array of food and sufficient choice of alcohol to wash it down with. An easy introduction to Spanish food if you feel a little intimidated about going to a typical bar, the food is at a surprisingly reasonable price, well worth a visit, and handy to the Plaza Mayor right next door.
  • Well presented upper-end style food market specialising in tapas plates. if you can grab a stool table, barrel table or table then do so and walk around selecting what you want to try/eat from each market store. You've pretty much everything catered to from breads, cakes thru olives, pickled vegetables, meats, fish in different styles. You've a few wine/beer sellers where you can get a glass or a bottle then have your food and move on. This places gets busy midday and afternoon. We tend to always get there earlier when in Madrid and have a few bites and a vino then move on It is also take-out as a market
  • This is an indoor market in Madrid with. Variety of food and drink stalls. Lots of interesting options, but be warned that it can get very crowded in there. The prices are also higher than average, but not prohibitive if you want to sample a variety of foods including caviar, cured meats, olives and tapas. Good spot to pick up edible gifts (olive oils, paprika) too.
  • While the market is always busy and the seating is limited, don't let that deter you from visiting. The market has a huge variety of dishes at an acceptable price. For anyone new to the city, this is a great way to sample a lot of cuisine without committing to a whole meal. Definitely worth spending an hour or two at!
  • As a popular tourist destination, be prepared for the prices to be notably more expensive here for any produce you may buy/try and that the produce might not be the best, although definitely not bad! Stalls selling everything from sweets to cured ham, wine and seafood are available here. Walking through this under cover market is exciting, as you get to see many different products for sale and the atmosphere makes a trip to this market a fun experience. Be aware of pickpockets however (especially as the market is very crowded), most notably children who appear to be walking around on their own.
