Mercado de San Antón, Madrid

Back in December I told you about Madrid and its many markets. Then I introduced you to the popular Mercado de San Miguel in the city center and promised I’d be back with a few others you should visit if you ever found yourself in Madrid.

So here I am, today I present you another must-see market for the curious souls, because did you hear kids, markets are in vogue (again)!

The Mercado de San Antón in the famous neighbourhood of Chueca is an old traditional Spanish indoors farmers’ market remodeled into a delicacies heaven (food market). On the ground floor you can find the finest spices, the most elegant of wines, the freshest seafood and fish, and the juiciest of meats, among other things, for you to take home.

    I love market like that. I would have been in heaven if I was there with you. When I find myself in Madrid I will most definitely make time to go there and then probably buy a bunch of useless things because that’s just the kind of thing I do at markets.
