Food markets and traditional markets
Mercado de San Antón.
San Antón market, Madrid.
We're sure you're already in no doubt that the most delicious way of learning more about Spanish culture and customs is to indulge in its cuisine. So we want to tell you about the vast network of traditional food and gastronomic markets whose doors are open to welcome you. There are very few Spanish cities where you won't find one of these "reinvented" spaces where you can experience the local gastronomy at its source. How about choosing your own hamburger meat and waiting in the stand next-door enjoying a craft beer while they cook it to order? This is one of the options available in these markets, where tradition and modernity go hand-in-hand. Yes, that's right. Historic buildings in the very heart of the cities that before housed only the local produce market and now offer a variety of gourmet and crafts options, and even live music. We highly recommended making a stop on your urban route and sampling some of Spain's gastronomy.
