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.

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, it 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.
