This by far has been one of my favorite places in Spain. The Mercado de San Miguel is a small food market tucked behind the Plaza Mayor.
What I loved best about the Marcado was the buzz of activity that surrounded you as soon as you walkedthrough the doors. I met up with a few friends from our group moments after entering.
There were stands for wine, olives, cheese, meats, fruits, sweets, roasted nuts, you name it they had it! I stuck with just my beer since we would be heading to dinner shortly, although there were many tempting dishes.
There was such a lively atmosphere with stalls around the outside edges and small tables and chairs along the inside. All around friends were gathering, chatting and sharing tapas. I couldn’t help but think this is exactly what we need in the states. If only a place like this existed in Marshfield!
After finishing up my beer, my friends and I headed out to meet up with the rest of our group at Plaza de Sol. I was sad to leave this little gem behind, I could have spent hours there. When we return to Madrid later this week I hope to return.
Have you ever been to Mercado de San Miguel? Did you love it as much as me?
