Market of San Miguel, Madrid
Built in 1916, the market originally specialized in fresh meats, bread, and produce. Its ar-
chitectural style mirrors that of French covered markets, with iron and glass as the primary
materials. After its last restructuration in the year 2003, the market expanded to include both
Spanish and international foods.
While it is not a very big market, it's exquisitely laid out and decorated. Its thirty-three stalls
are designed for a modern sensibility. Among its products you'll find many exquisite variet-
ies of fruits, bread, meat, sweets, sushi, Spanish ham, cheese, and flowers.
You can walk around the market and buy small portions to sample, or if you don't want to
spend any money you can simply enjoy the market's traditional atmosphere.
There are several bars where you can enjoy tapas and drinks. The market has become a very
renowned restaurants in the capital source their products from the San Miguel market.
