A very busy food market, good for foodies. A popular place with tourists and some locals so it does get quite busy at times. Good selection of fresh fruits , fish, etc. Well worth a visit.

Even if you are not hungry, makes you want to eat something there. Tapas galore and just amazing assortment of foods. It is not a huge place but big enough to stop and walk around. They are open early til 2am on weekends

Set in a photogenic steel and glass structure, this market is going to be on your list of things to visit in the old center. Everything is overpriced, tourism hit hard here, but the quality and variety makes this place a must taste. Try the 1€ tapas or the olives scoops for 2€.

The market looks nice, but it is just a bunch of take away food. The staff of the shop is rude and bored to death, the food is quite expensive and not so good. However it is a nice show with crowds. You can skip this place and go to Platea which looks much better, has more diverse food and... More

Close to the very touristy trail taking in the most popular sights this now upmarket market (for those that know it think Borough Market in London) gives the opportunity to sample many varied drinks and food from vermouth, vodka and cava with seafood, paella, tapas, caviar and even smoothies and sweets and cheeses. Great fun for a stand up lunch... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
