Imagine my excitement when we discovered this jewel of a market in historical old Madrid. San Miguel is one of the most emblematic traditional markets in Madrid with commerical activity as an open-air market dating back to the 19th century.
A few years ago, a group of professionals, who appreciated the architectural importance of this iron-built market, decided to refurbish this gorgeous piece of history. The idea was to maintain the range and character of the traditional market beginning with quality requisites based on fine hand-made produce and seasonal fare.
In February 2009, the doors of Mercado de San Miguel reopened, and there is no doubt everyone who walks through this epicurean masterpiece will indulge in a pleasurable sensory experience (or at least a series of drool wiping moments!).
