Top ways to experience Mercado de San Antón
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Fun trip out and great food
Mar 2020
The Mercado San Anton is made up of a supermarket, fresh market, food stalls and a restaurant/rooftop bar. I shopped here every day for 7 months while I was living in the area. The supermarket (it is a Supercor) is great with meat and fish counters with fresh produce and everything else needed for a weekly shop. Above the supermarket there is a fresh market with cheese stalls, meat stands, fresh bread etc - perhaps too expensive for daily goods but great quality and fun to go around. Next there is a floor dedicated to different food stands; lots of spanish wine and tapas stands but also chinese stalls, italian, french etc - it's great fun to go around and taste different plates at different stalls. Lastly at the top there is a rooftop bar with a few restaurants and bars. It is open from the morning until late at night and there are views over Chueca (the neighbourhood). You can sit inside or outside to have lunch, supper, drinks, snacks etc. Food-wise there are lots of options to share, such as tacos, prawn tempura, croquetas and then more substantial courses for mains. There are lots of cocktails on offer, those which I tried were great, and many Spanish wines. Highly recommend, not as busy/crowded or expensive as some of the other rooftop bars in Madrid but just as fun.

Must visit if in Madrid
Sep 2019 • Friends
I lived in Madrid for a year and spent a lot of time here. It is a must visit spot if you are a foodie visiting Madrid. Best to arrive when you are hungry and sample something from each stall, from delicious croquetas to fantastic sushi! The Korean fried chicken at the Korean stand is delicious too. Wash everything done with a glass of crisp white wine. Then head up to the roof top and sample the cocktails and enjoy the relaxed Madrid lifestyle! If you get hungry order more food on the rooftop, which is also delicious!

Tapas with the locals
Mar 2020
I was a tourist in town and was told this is where the locals go and not so many tourists. It proved to be true. It is located on the second floor of a Super Market and there is a rooftop bar above it. Seating is limited, but you can share tables and eventually find seats. It is not as big as Mercado San Miguel, but it is definitely less expensive and a lighter less chaotic atmosphere. They have all different types of Tapas including Paella (which was incredible), greek bites, sushi, desserts, seafood, etc... The first floor of the super market as you enter also has really good gelato which we really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend coming here. The people were really nice and welcoming.

Smaller Mercado with rooftop seating
Feb 2020 • Solo

A smaller market located in the Barrio de Chueca. At the entrance is a Nut vendor (so many different varieties) with a good size fruits and vegetable stand as you start the path.

A couple of butcher and Jambon stands as well, fish monger & restaurant. In the middle is a cafe that looked to have a nice selection of pastries and desserts.
A small restaurant (Korean) was tucked away in the corner.

Rooftop seating is also available. Although not the biggest Mercado, it covers most of the necessities.

Best sangria! Great!
Jan 2020 • Friends
Even if we have been there to as for some food at 23:00 they accepted us and looked after us very well even if we were the only two person in the entire restaurant and they were closing. Food is delicious, staff very attentive and professional. We have been there twice in a week. I never go back somewhere to eat when I’m on holiday because I think I should always try something new but it worth it! BEDT SANGRIA EVER!

Fish Corner: BAD FISH CAUTION!!
Feb 2020 • Solo
The manager of the level 1 fish corner dragged me over and promised a deal. TERRIBLE FOOD. Made me sick. I returned the platter barely eaten and he offered a new set of food, then he left the premises. This new food was just as bad. Then the server who has left tried to charge me for everything. Horrible horrible horrible. Pay attention to the negative reviews here. This is a terrible tourist trap.

Luxurious gastronomy
Feb 2020 • Couples
This smaller and less well known market for tourists is filled with very nice food and ingredients to take away. From fruits to truffles, fish, iberic ham and many other things. Also some very nice tapas bars.

Try other markets or go for a specialized and focused restaurant. We went there trying to substitute the busy-ness of the more marketed mercado San Miguel. This one is at the same price level and the quality I’d say is a notch below. We went to the more Spanish/local spot in the market. Ordered many things and again, we’ve had better.

Great for a snack and atmosphere
Feb 2020 • Couples
We came on a Saturday and the market was full of locals enjoying themselves. On the main floor there are a number of food stalls which you can take away from and sit at a table if you can find a space - you may have to share. We had tea and cake from Mma Framboise but you could have a beer, a glass of wine, a burger etc. There are more food places upstairs as well as a restaurant at roof level.
