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 Reviews & Ratings
Bring a thick wallet unless you have supreme self-control! Delicious tapas are sold over the counter, ranging from traditional dishes to experimental desserts. Although the prices are quite high (expect to pay 3+ euro for a mouthful), the sheer quality more than outweighs them. Open late, it is best to visit in the evening. It is usually very crowded, so I would recommend leaving smaller children at home or outside.
A stunning place! The San Miguel Market really feels like a gastronomic temple! Is one of the most famous markets in Madrid. Easy to reach cause it’s located in the city centre. It’s close to “Plaza Mayor”. The market has a stunning architecture and is so beautiful! Very good atmosphere. It can be very crowded but it’s acceptable. There you can taste the Spanish traditional cuisine, you can go for shopping or just to explore & enjoy! You can find all kinds of food & drinks... a place for everyone in my opinion! You can find whatever you want! Is definitely a “MUST SEE” when in Madrid! Nicely mixed with locals and tourists so you won’t feel like a stranger in it... Really worth exploring! I highly recommend it.
Incredible place to visit in Madrid. You can literally get everything under one roof. The seafood is probably the best thing to eat here, because the tapas is usually on top of a small bread that is extremely stale. I'd avoid anything that is on top of bread, but other than that, the food is really great and the fruit is very colourful. Not to mention it is fairly reasonably priced, you can't get tapas at this price in the UK. Overall = 7/10.
LOVE LOVE this Market. My favorite Mercado in the area not only for the food selection but the absolute energy. Centrally located, this is a great spot to take a quick visit to see the local tapas, vino or pastels if you want to either eat there or take away to go. It’s a nice place to just people watch as well and to take a breather from all there bustle of Madrid.
You'll have so many different options of Tapas for cheap price. Their price is reasonable and it's really good. Beer / Wine / Drinks are available. Awesome environment!! 100% recommend if you are visiting Madrid.
