Best Local markets in Madrid

Some say that if you want to get a real glimpse of daily life in the city, from the way Madrileños eat, to how they do business and interact with each other, then there's no better place to go than one of the many markets. Some are permanent, and these are where you'll find fresh food, while others are held on weekends or once a month, and are ideal for finding antiques and handicrafts.

7 Other Great Markets in Madrid

  • Mercado de Motores takes place on the second weekend of every month in the Railway Museum and features stalls selling vintage items, including vinyl, books, furniture and decorative items
  • Mercado Central de Diseño is held in Matadero Madrid in Legazpi on the first weekend of every month and is the place to check out the great work of Madrid-based designers and artists
  • Mercado San Antón is a great place to come if you want to regional specialities from around Spain, like Basque pintxos, Asturian cider or Madrid-style stew
  • Cuesta de Moyano is the name given to the hill near Atocha Station, on which you'll find a permanent book fair made up of 30 stalls selling new releases and out of print books
  • Mercado de la Paz, dating back 130 years, is found in the upmarket Salamanca neighbourhood and is the place to find artisan speciality foods, fresh fish and superb tapas
  • Rave Market held in La Latina has to be Madrid's most unique market, where people come together to trade their unwanted stuff and also dance to DJ sets

Kickstart Tour of Madrid with a Local

Great afternoon walking tour of Madrid with Beth. Being with Beth is like being with an old friend. She immediately makes you feel comfortable and her enthusiasm for the city is contagious. I had been to the Prado tour the day before my tour with Beth and it was exciting to see places where the artists had lived and worked. Beth also provided great recommendations for dinner and other activities to do during my visit. Beth's tour was one of the highlights of my trip. Thanks Beth!

Madrid Highlights & Tapas Tour

Thanks so much Enrique, I totally enjoyed our nighttime tapas walking tour! Enrique was willing to specialize an evening tour of Madrid with lots of sampling of tapas and fine wine. I’m a fast walker and Enrique was willing to cover a lot of ground and really show me lots of beautiful sights. He was fun, lively and engaging! Great tour!

We definitely recommend to book a tour with Jillian, she is a great local you shouldn't miss to meet during your stay in Madrid!
