Mercado de San Miguel

On our last afternoon in Madrid, we stopped into the famous Mercado de San Miguel for a snack of tapas and cava. In some ways this place had aspects in common with other markets I have photographed (see also Grand Central Market in LA), but the quality and liveliness of the place puts it in a class of its own.

We loved the empanadillas (unfortunately no pictures, these were gobbled up quickly), and cheese samples, which paired well with the cava. We will definitely return to the Mercado de San Miguel on a future visit to Madrid. Highly recommended!

Allison snapped a few of her own photos on a visit to the Mercado earlier in the week, which I add here.
