The San Anton market is located in the Chueca district and it located in Calle Augusto Figueroa. The easiest way to get to the market is on foot or by metro (station Chueca). We would not recommend driving to the market.
What products can be found at the Mercado de San Anton?
If you like excellent quality products, this is the place for you. On top of it, variety is the word used to describe the market, because you can really find whatever you want: typical fish stands (100% fresh but remember you should not purchase fish on Mondays!), meat, fruit and more. There is also a large selection of charcuterie and cheeses, which makes it the perfect place to buy traditional Spanish food.
Buying at the market brings pleasure. It is good to go with a bit of time on your hands and take the time to look at all the stands with different prices and products but also to try the best tapas from each and every one.
Are weights displayed in pounds in the San Anton market? Spaniards use kilograms and you will find all products’ prices per kilogram (2,2 pounds).
Is it worth visiting Mercado de San Anton?
The market is so close to Gran Via that it makes for a perfect stop in your itinerary in Madrid. But this is more than a market! so in case you are hungry we believe this is also a great place for you!
The market is located in a 5 storey building and only the second floor covers the market. On two more floors you will find a fantastic tapas market with many different stalls opened where you will be able to get food from. Tables are shared among the stalls, so you can decide to buy food from more than one of them! Different regions of Spain are covered. We have reserved the best part of the market for our last comment.
