Only love and delicacy can not be abandoned. The Miguel market is a glass paradise from the outside. Colorful food glitters with warm lights. In Madrid, the food illuminates your way. Entering the market is full of tapas, Spain's local characteristics. Traveling in Spain, you can always find that in a country laughed at by the Chinese as a depressed country, the wind and leaves can add a desolation to its streets. But as long as you are close to the place where food is sold, you can see the vibrant side of Spain. People sit outside eating tapas, sipping beer and chatting for an afternoon. When a gust of wind blows, you will only sigh that the weather has finally cooled down a little. Have another cup of cafe con leche! The power of food is great.
The square is not big, mainly because of the St. Miguel market, so there are many tourists here. Everyone goes to the market. By the way, if you are interested, you can stroll around the square. The market itself is not very big, but the variety of goods is very complete, well displayed, so it is particularly attractive. Price, I don't think it's cheap. Just like the scenic spots on our side, it is not a traditional domestic agricultural market. The price is cheap and affordable. Their market environment is very good. They are a good comprehensive market. They can buy special products at meals. There are also many other restaurants in the square and many bars along the street. Open a few bottles of wine, accompanied by a few tapas, eat, drink and laugh in the open-air seats, lively, pleasant and enjoyable. Europeans like to bask in the sun, so do Spaniards. And the sunshine here is very abundant, clearly has sunburnt dark, still in the hot sun, really do not understand. If there is a table, one side can be directly illuminated by the sun and the other side is in the shade of a tree. There is no doubt that they will choose to eat in the sun. Are they not afraid of the sun or the heat? It takes only a few minutes to walk around the square. It's not a good scenic spot, just by the way.
I think the expression of this scenic spot is wrong. It should be called St. Miguel's Market. It is located on the edge of Mayor Square, Madrid's most famous market. Here you can enjoy the authentic Spanish food TAPAS, and the atmosphere is very good. Come to Madrid, visit this market is also a must-experience, recommendation! ___________
The ancient city of Segovia in Spain is like a castle of ladies, permeated with ladies'romance, dignity and magnificence. The Millennium Aqueduct in Seville was built in 53 A.D. and preserved intact. It was once the Segovian City Wall. The two-storey arch of the Aqueduct is unique.
Saint Miguel Market is a vegetable market in the center of Madrid. There are many snack stalls with super crowds. We went there in the afternoon. There are many people in it. People come to eat and drink in front of all kinds of food stalls. It's like a big stall. We bought a slice of ham at a ham stall. The fragrance is very pure, but it's not cheap. It is said that there are many thieves here, but when they see that the local people don't care at all, they carry their bags on their backs, maybe only for our tourists.
Mercado San Miguel is wonderful (probably why it won best gastronomic shop with El Mundo’s Metropoli awards). It’s a relatively recently converted market that has various food and beverage stalls around the edge and seating in the middle – it’s a like a posh food hall. Depending on your tastes, I usually start with a vermut (a bargain at 1.5 – 3€/glass) or jerez and the most fresh green olives I have tasted (usually I am not a big fan). Then a wander around the stands to see what is on offer. I highly recommend trying the Carrasco Jamon Ibercio Bellota (Bellota is the key word). You’ll see the stand easily enough and it’s well worth getting the good stuff at 14€/100gms. Note that when it is busy, some stands have tickets and serve people in order.
Was so sad that we had eaten dinner before arriving here. There was so much to eat and choose from! We did end up getting a couple bites here and there. The star was probably the squid ink paella on the outer ring of the market. For 5 euros you got a decent portion of delicious paella. Just keep in mind, cash is faster here, but they do take card - just be warned you might get some glares. Would come back in a heartbeat!
If you are downtown and want somewhere fun to eat you have to visit El Mercado San Miguel. Whether you are in the mood for a bottle of Spanish cava, some jamon iberico, or some famous Spanish tapas, you will find it here. You can even do some of your shopping here because it has fresh/local produce and fresh seafood from the nearby Atlantic. I loved going to different counters and trying a little of everything. The atmosphere is fun, exciting, and lively (especially at night). Plus, it's just a quick walk from La Puerta del Sol.
