It has forever been the neighbourhood market, with grandmothers and their baskets, right next to the Plaza Mayor. Nowadays, San Miguel Market has transformed itself into a culinary centre where you can buy fresh fish as well as enjoy a healthy roasted soybean snack, a cold beer, tapas or a frozen yoghurt. With its distinctive iron architecture dating back to the early nineteenth century, it is the last remaining market of its type in the capital. Following the path of the multifaceted Boqueria market in Barcelona but with more of a chic edge, San Miguel has won the hearts of locals and tourists alike who enjoy its colours, aromas and its tapas, and relies on the international pull of Spanish cuisine. Here, tasting, courses, events and presentations take place, with the objective of spreading the joy of Spanish culinary traditions and the concept of slow food. Note down some of these essential stopping points: Hamburguesa Nostra, salazones en La Casa del Bacalao, vinoteca Pinkleton & Wine, frutería La Flor, ostras Daniel Sorlut and dulces de Horno San Onofre. Irresistible. You will want to return every day. For more information visit www.mercadodesanmiguel.es.
