- Mercado de San MiguelSep 14, 2013
Considered a Property of Cultural Interest, the Mercado the San Miguel has become one of the most glamorous spots in the city and a meeting point for gourmets. Salted fish from the traditional Casa del Bacalao, European meats from La Boucherie, fresh pasta from Il Pastaio, Jugosa juices or cakes from Horno San Onofre. These are just some of the delicacies you will find in this historical market, a food connoisseur's paradise filled with modern products that, come sundown, turns into a popular stop for tapas.Recommended for

One of my fav places in Madrid.....perfect for grabbing a wide range of high-quality tapas in a cool atmosphere which is usually buzzing in early/mid evening any day of the week. Also can grab a bottle of wine from the great wine-bar located there and roam around with it, or just get beer/wine by the glass. This place is a must visit, again evening 'happy hour' or tapas is best time.

If Bobby Flay or Anthony Bourdain were visiting Madrid, this would be the first place the chefs would visit. It's a cathedral to all things food and the type of place "Top Chef" or "Next Food Network Star" could be filmed. The best time to visit is Friday around 8pm - when peckish locals converge to sample something delicious before they stroll off to one of their favorite restaurants. The enclosed market offers great tapas, cheeses, wine and beer, and various gourmet items.

This is a must visit if your in Madrid.Great concept, individual vendors selling great tapas. It was so much fun to go from booth to booth sampling all of the fantastic Spanish food. We just kept going back again and again. Skip the sit down dinner idea and just go to Mercado de San Miguel, great food and great fun.

Gayle and I shared a nice evening at Mercado de San Miguel. It did remind us of the Ferry Building in San Francisco, except that the various offerings are much better packed together and the energy is more lively and fun. Mercado de San Miguel is also right next to Plaza Mayor and offers a much better people watching and food quality experience for your hard earned Euro. At the same time, good quality nibbles aren't necessarily cheap.
We started with some vino from Pinkerton & Wine and supplemented our nice and tart Basque white with a fine selection of cheeses (and bread of course) from a kiosk across the way. It was an almost perfect combination as Gayle and I chatted away and recapped our day in Toledo and relished the energy of the night before Día de la Fiesta Nacional de España.
Seating is a bit limited and with only high tables available, the level of comfort doesn't invite too much lingering. We would have also welcomed a little more ventilation on this warm October evening. And yet as we looked around at the other offerings (produce, croqueta sherry, baked goods, etc.), we happily imagined the additional possibilities if we were ever to pass this way again.

El Mercado de San Miguel is an indoor food and drink market where you can go around and try a bunch of different things. It's very lively and fun, especially at night. Try one of the local Rioja wines, eat oysters the size of your head, or have some potato chips and cerveza.
