This mercado is on the border between Chueca and Malasana neighborhoods. It is less grand than Mercado San Miguel, but therein lies its charm. It is is easier to navigate, especially if your with someone in a wheelchair. The crowd is younger and hipper than at San Miguel. There is a happy hour M-Th from 4:30 - 6:30, 2 for... More

What an interesting place in the middle of Madrid with many food & drink stalls all offering tastings to entice you to eat their fare. A great choice including several that gluten free food to satisfy our daughter. We had interesting chicken & avocado tasties with a glass of local white wine & then moved onto a Chinese stall with...

We visited the market at around 1730 when it reopens for the evening. The meat on display and the colourful vegetable made me wish that I had access to a kitchen! We stopped for a glass of organic wine at the bodega cerron and had a delicious plate of local cheese with it but perhaps the most enjoyable part of... More

We visited this food court on a Friday around 19:00, and were lucky enough to find a table downstairs, where it's not too loud. There is a good food selection with different types of dishes. I had a sweet crepe and a savory one, they were very good, and the girl who served me was very nice - she even... More

This is a nice food court in the center of Madrid. You have many different types of food to chose from. If you go on the weekend be prepared to wait a long time for a table. The music is quite loud making it difficult to talk. On the pricy side for Madrid.

This market is awesome, it is small and has a short variety of eateries where you can grab anything from traditional Spanish dishes to Venezuelan Arepas or a Poke-bowl. The coolest aspect is the top floor bar and the fact that, at night, they have a DJ and the whole place becomes a sort of night-club with great ambience, food... More

It's the market that I like more in Madrid because the location is perfect in the heart of Malasaña. Also you can choose between different kinds of foods from a lot of countries. I recommend the burgers of the hall.

try planing your trip so you would get there by noon (around 12-12:30) and grab a cold beer and something to eat

We had a business event and the whole place was ours. Individual stalls were every one can get tapas at their choice. Big variety, good wines, multiple floors, even outside sitting possible,plus some entertainment, ... Really nice experience.

As I said blink and you miss it. This converted market now has loads of stalls selling street food: pizza, tapas, arepas, sushi, paella, etc. It has two outside patio areas as well as an inside area where you can eat. Great for a quick bite to eat or when you don't really know what you fancy :-)

Neighbourhood Profile
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
