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
  • Mercado Anton Martin near the Metro station is a classic Spanish food market, set over two levels dedicated to fresh produce food stalls and specialty food shops

Madrid Street Photography Workshop

I did the Street Photography Workshop with Julio and it was fabuous. We want a nice walking tour of several neighborhoods while talking about photography. He gave me some great pointers on taking street photos. I don't know that I will ever be that great at them but now I have tools to try. I would highly recommend booking an experience with Julio. You won't regret it.

Wine & Tapas Tour: A Gourmet Journey

Paul and Stephanie,
Jorge was wonderful. He spent the whole evening with us probably around four hours. He met us on time and even though some of the tapas Places were not open he improvised and we had a wonderful evening. The food was wonderful, refreshing and eclectic as was the conversation with Jorge. What an amazing young man and what exceptional Life stories he has to tell. It was our pleasure to have him guide us this evening.
