If I lived in Madrid this is where I would want to shop! The freshest of the fresh. Amazing fish, vegetables, meats and accompaniments. Made me want to cook dinner instead of going out!

We were looking forward to our visit to this market so slightly disappointed with the trip there. No denying it was a vibrant and colourful place but just not varied, dynamic or actually interesting. In terms of what was there the food was good just...More

Nice and local! You don’t find many tourist here. They do have some nice tapasbars and stalls to get a drink. If you are in the area it is a nice stop.

Nice market heavy on meat vendors. There were cheese and vegetables as well. Not really a place you’d go to eat there.

Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a
different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
