It’s been a long time coming but the Mercado de Salamanca is back – and is looking great.
This 1920s food market in the El Molinillo neighbourhood, just north of the Historic Centre, has undergone a complete renovation, maintaining its unique neo-Arab architecture.
This is, unlike Atarazanas market, very much where locals go. While it is small, there is a lot of excellent local produce, especially fresh fish.
If you’re peckish, be sure to stop at any of the excellent tapas bars or cafés surrounding the market.
Typically, Salamanca market is open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 3pm, or until the produce is all sold out.
