Historically, one of the fastest and exciting ways to discover a place and its people, their way of life and their culture, has been in their markets. This is the place where visitors can observe the varied types of people who come to buy food to later be served on their tables, see how people choose, select and purchase products to fill their pantries.
Markets are places where people’s characters become spontaneous and free. It's an open window for visitors to discover colors, shapes, smells, and tastes, creating a snapshot of the city.
Markets are not only the place where locals go to buy groceries, but because of the open mindedness and joy of Madrid inhabitants they also have served as a meeting point for people to have a good time together, where our healthy Mediterranean cuisine can be enjoyed in a perfect fusion between the place, the food, and its people.
