A pioneer in turning the street food concept into the hallmark of markets in Madrid, San Ildefonso is the perfect place to complement a day's shopping. Located in the epicentre of young fashion, Fuencarral street, this gastro market is recommended for taking a break when shopping in the Chueca, Malasaña and Tribunal neighbourhoods.
A space with an industrial design, on three floors, with eighteen stalls of all kinds: Seafood and fried fish, sausages, tapas, brochettes, gourmet burgers, select wines, crêpes and coffees of the world. Three bars and two terraces complete the layout of this market that includes a significant solidarity initiative. Once a week – normally on Wednesday – San Ildefonso Market opens its doors to non-profit organisations for them to give out information and make collections for humanitarian projects. A percentage of the money taken at the stalls is given to these organisations and the market offers them its facilities free of charge. In short, San Ildefonso is a strategic place to take a break when out and about.
