Mercado San Miguel - Review
Madrid’s oldest market gets more beautiful and interesting by the decade! The city renovated it, but everyone was still surprised that it made such a great public space. The architecture is cool enough – Beaux-Arts in steel and iron an glass. But the food… ah, the food. Pastries, tapas, wine and everything in between – it’s 33 stalls of sheer delight.
Heck, they even put up their own steel tables for picnics! The people watching is excellent – tourists from around the centre of the city descend here like flies, and you should definitely join those ranks. The best past is, it’s open late into the night!

Mercado San Miguel, Madrid Reviews
This place is very eye-catching inside and out. You can find a ton of various foods inside, but it’s mostly a tourist trap. I decided I’d buy a pint of beer to enjoy while browsing the vendors and was pretty shocked when it set me back 8€. Make sure to keep your receipt unless you want to dish out some more money to use the restrooms. If you’re looking to experience true Spanish culture, this place is not it. If you’re looking to find hundreds of different kinds of tapas, you’re in the right spot.
What a fantastic bustling indoor market within an exquisite architectural pleasing building. Even if you don't want to go here for something to eat or drink, its worth visiting just to view the building and its fabulous market stalls. The atmosphere is electric and as Spanish as it can possibly get. You can buy every tapas known to man from fish 🐟, cheese, meat 🐄 🐖 and olives. There is coffee ☕, wine 🍷 beer 🍺 on tap. 👍👍👍👍👍
Mercado San Miguel is glassed-in market building that was constructed just west of Plaza Mayor in 1914-15 that you can visit to try many local food and drinks. It is a great foodie stop in Madrid. Opening hours are 10am to 10pm daily. Here you find numerous stands selling good tapas, paella and other finger foods, desserts as well as beer, wines, sherries and cocktails that you can try while lingering around the market stalls or while hanging out with friends. Serving prices are a bit high but most food and drinks we sampled were quite good and the overall experience of visits to Mercado San Miguel was rewarding. They keep the market tidy and clean. There is some centre standing room and a few bar style tables as well mounted TVs showing sports or other programmes. We were able to watch part of a Euro 2016 match during one of our recent visits. In the end, we very much enjoyed visiting Mercado San Miguel and ended up stopping by on three occasions while we were in Madrid this month. Its conveniently located just a couple minutes past Plaza Mayor, which most tourists will visit during their holiday. Adding a quick (or long) stop at Mercado San Miguel is highly recommendable.
A very clean, indoor market with beautiful modern architecture located in the center of Madrid. Through the many stalls you’ll get to taste a nice variety of Spanish delicacies like tapas, oysters, ham cuts, and a large variety of wines. It is a great place to come with a friend to taste the food from all the different stalls. Prices are relatively high, (since it is considered a tourist spot) but the place is upscale as well.
Gorgeous, exciting market with amazing food to dip into and move on from. A lovely discovery - perhaps an obvious one is that you can walk around with your drinks - so you could get a glass or Cava and then move on to the Oyster bar. This is a great place to experience local delicacies and meet some very friendly people.
