San Fernando Market opened in 1944 and nowadays it is a place where tradition and modernity go hand in hand. Typical fish shops, butcher's shops and grocer's shops can be found next to a shop selling books by weight or a shop that delivers organic fruit to your doorstep, by bike.
San Fernando is a market where traditional businesses have been reinvented and now it includes cultural shops that make your shopping experience healthy and different. In this market in the district of Lavapiés it is possible to sip on craft beer or enjoy tapas while you watch a swing dance competition in the central courtyard or while a photo exhibition is being opened. Sewing and show repair services, hairdresser's, natural cosmetics, gourmet products, attachment parenting products, handmade leather goods, and a co-working space where graphic designers, interior designers, architects and communications professionals work, amongst others. At San Fernando Market you can find original gifts and, more importantly, good advice and a personalised service.
