Madrid´s minister for Tourism Almudena Maíllo, today visited Madrid´s iconic Mercado de San Miguel to show support for it´s re-opening to the public after over 3 months of closed doors due to the lockdown.
The indoor market was first opened in 1916 and was renovated as a premium gastro food hall by a private consortium who re-opened it in 2009. Since then it has been a hugely successful addition to Madrid´s culinary scene and popular with tourists with an estimated 10 million visitors a year.

The market has more than 30 stalls offering a wide range of regional Spanish food and drink products including cheeses, jamones and wines. and includes several stalls offering Michelin starred offerings from Spanish super chefs including Javi Estevez , Jordi Roca and Roberto Ruiz.
