Having tapas in san miguel

History radiates from all the corners of this market right in the old part of Madrid and at the same time it offers the most interesting innovations in terms of culinary art.

The walls made of glass invite the passersby to take part in what happens inside, encouraging them to go in and find out about a world of flavors and smells one cannot forget.

And it is not only that you can buy things and cook them at home, but you can also have tapas in different places, they have various types of food. You can eat directly at the counter or in the area made for this purpose.

Every corner of the market has a specialty: seafood, cold meat, croquettes, bread, candies, wine, etc. On the cod fish stand you can have different types of it for 1€ each snack, you get it on a small tray, and then you should go and get a drink to enjoy even more.

You can also have an oyster, a little bit of caviar, cheese, ham, gazpacho, shrimp, and many other delicious delicacies. Although some of them are quite expensive, most of the pinchos cost like 1,50€ or 2€. And don't think you will have to skip dessert: a stand of chocolate or cakes served in portions will leave you flabbergasted without knowing which one to choose.

Another interesting element is the opening hours, from Thursday to Saturday they open between 10 am and 2 am without interruption, so that at approximately 8 pm it starts getting busy, not only with locals but also with travelers from all over the world, coming to this market to give their palate a real "feast of flavors".

Gourmet products

After two years of building works, this market opened again in May 2009. It is now dedicated to gourmet food and the prices are indeed the usual ones for this type of products.

There are many bars, tables and benches in the center, you can order at the different stands and taste them right there, even though it is quite difficult to find a free spot. It is always very busy.

One of the most curious stands is the one with oysters and caviar, called Sorlut. There is also a seafood stand, a codfish shop, a cake shop and even a flower shop and a bookshop.

New and different in the center of madrid

Old market in the center of Madrid (next to Plaza Mayor) turned into a posh and somewhat snob place. It is worth visiting it because it has been restored with much taste and on almost each stand there is something you would devour without pity.

Good pork butcher's, excellent cheese, amazing fruit stand, you can also eat oysters... They even have a bookshop specialized in gastronomical topics, a place where they sell candies, wine, alcoholic drinks and exquisite "pinchos" (snacks) to have from 1€, delighting your palate.

Something new and different in the purest Madrid style that make a simple pleasant walk turn into a very nice day.

You can’t miss it

The San Miguel Market has turned into one of Madrid’s top tourist destinations since it’s reopening in 2009, and with good reason. Aside from being gorgeous on the outside, the market is home to wide variety of posts and stalls which attract hordes of tourists both from Spain and abroad.
You can find everything from flowers to cheese, legumes, fresh fish, and even caviar. You can actually taste most of the products available and there are tables set up to enjoy your food or just have a drink while soaking up the atmosphere.
I must say that it’s not the cheapest place to do your day-to-day shopping, but it does gather most of Spain’s top products into one comfortable place. It’s a pretty amazing place.

Very special

San Miguel Market is historical. Very recently however, the last building works have turned it into one of the most touristic places in Madrid. And no wonder why. It is quite similar to the Boquería Market in Barcelona (although somewhat more exclusive or gourmet and less of a traditional market). The perfect place to have an aperitif or a salty snack, the typical Spanish "cañas and tapas" that is.

Obviously it is not cheap. It is very touristic and has high-quality products. But even so it is a place you cannot miss out on if you visit Madrid.

The march of san miguel

The Market of San Miguel, on the square of the same name, close to the Plaza Mayor, is a place not to be missed. Beautiful covered market of 1200m ², his whole frame is made of glass and iron. Plaza San Miguel knows a long tradition of market: already in the Middle Ages it hosted the city market, until the Napoleonic era. If the idea of ​​making a covered area was born in 1865, its implementation was much later, and the new San Miguel market was inaugurated in the early twentieth century. But beyond the beautiful structure, inside which is really worth the visit greatly inspired by the amazing Boqueria of Barcelona, ​​the market multiplies the beautiful and stands high in colors, smells and flavors. Traditional market products of high quality, space is largely dedicated to the "tapas", namely the time of tapas, where hundreds of Madrid rush to taste servings of all kinds. Slices of mozzarella foam, potatoes cooked in salt land, toast salmon, cod in all its forms, burgers cooked to torch, oysters, marinated chicken skewers, cheeses of all kinds, stuffed olives, pine cones sausage, fruit cocktails , wine, ice cream, homemade pastries, fruit salads ... there is something for everyone. It is certain that the budget or starving will not make a full meal there, because some portions can be a bit expensive, it is imperative to get there to sample some of the specialties of the market for a few euros and get drunk colors, and typical Spanish atmosphere that reigns in the early evening. Magnificent!

Le marché de san miguel

Le marché de San Miguel, situé sur la place du même nom, à deux pas de la Plaza Mayor, est un endroit à ne pas manquer. Magnifique marché couvert de 1200m², toute son armature est faite de verre et de fer. La Plaza San Miguel connait une très longue tradition de marché: déjà au Moyen-Age elle accueillait le marché de la ville, et ce jusqu'à l'époque napoléonienne. Si l'idée d'en faire un espace couvert est née dès 1865, sa réalisation fut bien plus tardive; et le nouveau marché San Miguel fut inauguré au début du XXe siècle. Mais au-delà de la magnifique structure, c'est l'intérieur qui vaut véritablement le détour: grandement inspiré de l'incroyable Boquería de Barcelone, le marché multiplie les stands magnifiques et hauts en couleurs, en odeurs, et en saveurs. Marché traditionnel aux produits de très grande qualité, l'espace est aussi en grande partie dédiée au "tapeo", à savoir l'heure des tapas, où des centaines de madrilènes se pressent pour goûter les portions en tout genre. Tartines de mousse de mozzarela, pommes de terres cuites au sel, toast de saumon, morue sous toutes ses formes, hamburgers cuits aux chalumeau, huîtres, brochettes de poulet mariné, formages en tout genre, olives garnies, cônes de saucisson, cocktails de fruits, vins, glaces, pâtisseries maisons, salades de fruits... il y en a pour tous les goûts. S'il est certain que les petits budgets ou les affamés n'y feront pas un repas complet, car certaines portions peuvent être un peu chères, il faut absolument s'y rendre pour goûter à quelques unes des spécialités du marché, pour quelques euros, et s'enivrer de couleurs, et de l'ambiance typiquement espagnole qui y règne en début de soirée. Magnifique !

Tapas, wine and oysters at will!

If you are close to the Plaza Mayor during the lunch hour (or for breakfast, snack, dinner ...) will definitely recommend to eat at the market of San Miguel is located in the square of the same name just off Plaza Mayor. It's covered market, one of the few remaining with the coverage of iron dates back to 1916. Inside you can find banks that offer the best local specialties: all kinds of tapas, fish and shellfish, fresh, homemade pasta, sushi, fruits and smoothies, wine and coffee. At the center of the structure are placed a few tables to stop for a bite to eat ... if you have the patience to wait for a seat! It's really worth taking advantage of this market: the product quality is very good, some things are a little expensive, but most are affordable (glass of wine 3 or 4 €, but tapas € 1). Also great for a plate of oysters "eat and go"!

Tapas, vino e ostriche a volontà!

Se vi trovate nelle vicinanze di Plaza Mayor durante l'ora del pranzo (o per colazione, merenda, cena...) vi consiglio assolutamente di mangiare al mercato di San Miguel che si trova nella piazzetta omonima appena fuori da Plaza Mayor. Si tratta di mercato coperto, uno dei pochi rimasti con la copertura in ferro risalente al 1916.
Al suo interno si possono trovare banchi che offrono le migliori specialità locali: ogni tipo di tapas, pesce e molluschi, dolci, pasta fatta in casa, sushi, frutta e frullati, vino locale e caffetteria. Al centro della struttura sono collocati alcuni tavolini per fermarsi a mangiare un boccone... se si ha la pazienza di aspettare un posto!
Vale veramente la pena approfittare di questo mercato: la qualità dei prodotti è ottima, alcune cose sono un pò care ma la maggior parte è abbordabile (bicchiere di vino 3 o 4€, ma tapas a 1€).
Ottimo anche per un piatto di ostriche "eat & go"!
