Linger at Madrid’s Mercado San Miguel, Spain

If you happen to pass by Madrid, you may want to reserve some time for Mercado San Miguel.

It’s a great place to linger for a glass of wine or two before heading for dinner mas tarde. You’ll find fresh meat, cold cuts, seafood stands boasting fresh oysters and champagne, cocktails, wine bars, pastries, local jamón, coveted home made croquetas, a stuffed olive stand and one with fine cheeses, all under one roof.

Whether your visit takes you for a much-needed morning smoothie, or to grab a bite at the mozzarella stand whilst waiting on your Madrid lemonade (alcoholised, as you’d expect), the Mercado makes one wonder why every town doesn’t have such a place – or why it isn’t this good if it does.
