The first time we visited was mid-morning. It was very quiet with only a few vendors open. We went a day later, on a foodie tour, in the late middle of the day. Vibrant and alive all the venders were there and business was booming....More
Having looked at reviews for the markets in Madrid this was not rated bur we found this one by accident near attocha. Three were stalls on the street and then the entrance to the market. There were a few stall and a number of interstinh...More
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
A proper market for all your food shopping & tapas bars all over.

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
dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighbourhood.
