Madrid’s Must-See New Old Market This Summer
Tuesday, July 28, 2009
This week the NYT drops by what’s got to be near the top of any list of things to see while visiting Madrid: the newly reopened Mercado San Miguel, the city’s mecca for food junkies and people watchers, as well as a top destination for travelers hoping to join in on a tradition since 1916.
Home to 33 vendors ranging from fresh fruit to tapas, the market stays open until 2 a.m. from Thursday through Saturday for the notoriously late Spanish diners. As if you were going to be sleeping at 1 a.m. in Madrid anyway.
