Do As The Locals Do: Madrid’s Mercado de San Miguel

Do As The Locals Do: Madrid’s Mercado de San Miguel

by Dejou Marano

Age is somethinng that doesn't matter, unless you are a cheese.

Luis Bunuel
A real madrileño knows that the best local flavors can only be found down at the mercado, and without a doubt, the Mercado de San Miguel is one of Madrid’s finest. Located just off of the Plaza Mayor, the mercado rises like an iron cornucopia, its Beaux-Arts construction overflowing with the very best of Spanish produce. It is a place for the people and by the people – a lively mix of characters both young and old, joined happily together to pay homage to some of life’s little pleasures. Bocadillos? They’ve got plenty. Writhing for the richly aromatic, melt-in-your-mouth goodness of Pata Negra? Look no further. Wash it all down with a rosy Garnacha and you’ve just guaranteed a good day, a very good day indeed. Still craving more?  Check out our favorite roving epicurean and audacious vanguard of cuisine, Anthony Bourdain, as he uncovers the heart of this much beloved Madrid landmark.
