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

Prado Museum Private Tour with Ticket Included!

Our experience at The Prado was made so much more enjoyable with the company and guidance of the friendly and funny Elena. She showed us parts of the museum we might have missed had we ventured alone. Her passion for art emanated through the stories she told us, which made the experience so much more engaging and exciting. We had two young teens with us who can sometimes struggle to appreciate art but Elena was able to make us play games and ask questions that kept the kids engaged. I would highly recommend hiring Elena for a tour of The Prado to showcase the highlights of the museum, there is so much to see and she does a fantastic job of making sure you see the best. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Kickstart Tour of Madrid with a Local

Ayla introduced us to the main sights to the west of the city. This was really useful and helped us get our bearings on our first day in Madrid. Ayla also chatted a little in Spanish with our son who is trying to learn Spanish at school. The restaurant and follow up suggestions were great too. Well worth it.

A customized trip with Tamara

We spent the best morning with Tamara! She was great at keeping in touch with us before the tour and helping us make it exactly what we wanted. She is very knowledgeable, kind and prompt. We got there a bit early, and she had beaten us there! She did her homework, and knew what would be open the day of our tour. Being from the states, she English is easy to understand. This was not always the case with other tours we took. She loves food, the city she calls home, and you will not be disappointed.
