Welcome to Madrid
In the heart of Chueca, this market is full of surprises and is well worth a visit. Although it originally dates back to the 19th century, after it was knocked down it was rebuilt in 2011 to create a modern building with areas to buy food and also restaurants.
The market is spread over three floors:
The Mercado de San Antón also represents a new model of sustainable market, in which the central skylight acts as a huge photovoltaic energy collector and the floor is made from molten basalt, an originally recycled material. There is also a collection system which reduces the volume of organic waste by 80%. The market has free Wi-Fi on all floors.
