A local market
Mercado de la Paz8
Why locals love it
Hidden among fashionable brand stores in the Salamanca neighbourhood, this food market has provided the locals with fresh food and delicatessen products for more than 130 years. People come here to shop seafood, meet, cheese, fruit and much more, in a market that extends to outdoor stalls.
Why you should visit it
As this is not right in downtown, you'll find very few tourists here and a more local experience. It's mainly based on food for home-cooking, but ready made tapas can be found as well. Enjoy a walk around the many colourful stalls in this cozy market, that also includes non-food stalls. Note that the market is closed on Sundays.
Looking for an edible souvenir? Here you'll find a wide range of products in cans and glasses - easy to bring home.
