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!

Definitely I was expecting something more from San Gines.
The "churros" was a little bit greasy and the hot chocolate was regular. It was nothing especial at all.
However I think it worth a visit. The ambiance is really nice and the service awesome

So pretty! But it's more expensive than other places to find the typical tapas food! But none the less it's a fun time for drinks and good food

A place tourists love! It is nice to pass by and to have a glass and a tapa but it is pretty expensive for Spanish standards.

Madrid's equivalent to London's Borough Market, grab a glass of wine and stoll the market sampling the variety of fresh produce.

A foodie's delight! You literally have everything Spain has to offer at your finger tips! Eat as much or as little as you like. Everything including desserts are available. This is a must stop when in Madrid! ... Keep at least one receipt in case you have to use the restroom. If you don't have a receipt, you'll have to pay to use it.

My first stop in Madrid for a quick snack! This medium sized market is good for on-the-go tapas or if your in the mood for Tintos(Sangrias) and oysters head to the mercado's bars. A little bit pricier than most markets so its more of a splurge than usual.

Great market for a range of Spanish delights. You can eat a meal there, go for samples or simply enjoy looking at all the variety of food.

Wonderful spot to eat drink and meet people. I was traveling alone and I met people from Brazil, Russia and USA and Spain. I loved it!

In the morning light this mercado is perfectly photogenic so bring your favorite camera. There's just something beautiful about neat rows of vegetables, black and white tiles shining cuts of meat. It makes an omnivore want to cook, and eat, of course. In the meantime, take a few photos.

Most likely one of the most touristy feeling markets in Madrid, as it is just around the corner from Plaza Mayor and Sol (the city center), Mercado de San Miguel is still a great place to grab a bite to eat, aside from the tourist trap locations a plenty in the area.

Refurbished market in central Madrid that has been transformed into a series of small food stalls. An excellent place for trying all sorts of tapas.

The Mercado de San Miguel is a food lover's paradise! Perfect for fans of any type of food, even vegetarians and vegans! Spend your day browsing the mixed stalls with cheap tapas and great drink. The buzz and excitement here is unmatched anywhere else in the city. Make sure to try the sea urchin and mussels!

This is one high end market or food court. They have a little of everything here although it's not as big as the Boqueria in Barcelona, the Mercado de San Miguel does have some amazing offerings. For one at lunch, I had the absolute BEST artisan mozzarella in my life here! It was buttery, creamy, pillowy, and mild at the same time. There was a stand in the corner that sold a plate of 5 samples for €5. Best deal ever. I went and got a glass of house red from the wine bar, then had some mozzarella. Superb choice.

Later in the evening we returned, tried the paella from the paella stand and ordered some sliders from the burger stand. We also ordered sangrias for €2 each. Lunch or dinner can be as cheap or as expensive as you want. The food is tasty and it can get busy but it is a tourist mecca. Prices are more expensive than in Barcelona but I imagine it is because there wasn't much competition between the stands. There was at least one of everything but no repeats in vendors. When in Madrid, dine, and dine well.

Considered a Property of Cultural Interest, the Mercado the San Miguel has become one of the most glamorous spots in the city and a meeting point for gourmets. Salted fish from the traditional Casa del Bacalao, European meats from La Boucherie, fresh pasta from Il Pastaio, Jugosa juices or cakes from Horno San Onofre. These are just some of the delicacies you will find in this historical market, a food connoisseur's paradise filled with modern products that, come sundown, turns into a popular stop for tapas.

One of my fav places in Madrid.....perfect for grabbing a wide range of high-quality tapas in a cool atmosphere which is usually buzzing in early/mid evening any day of the week. Also can grab a bottle of wine from the great wine-bar located there and roam around with it, or just get beer/wine by the glass. This place is a must visit, again evening 'happy hour' or tapas is best time.

I loved the Market of San Miguel! Perfectly located steps away from Plaza Mayor, it offered the best variety of tapas! We literally just walked from stand to stand sampling, and everything was delicious. It is a bit touristy, but still really, really worth it.
