The Market of San Miguel is not nearly as impressive as the food market Mercat de Sant Josep in Barcelona, but if you are wandering past Plaza Morenas, you might want to stop just to view the building.

The Mercado de San Miquel as viewed from Calle Mayor.

The Mercado de San Miquel is located in a remarkable turn- of-the-20th-century building which seems somewhat out of place among the stone and mortared buildings that surround it.

The striking ornamental detail of the building was achieved through the use of paint and wrought iron.

If you are lucky enough to be in the vicinity of the Mercado de San Miguel during its opening hours, step inside. But do not be surprised to find the security curtains on many of the booths still in place. Each booth is operated independently, each owner having his own operating hours independent of those hours posted on the outside of the building.

Despite the number of closed booths, the Mercado is still a good place for a traveler to shop where even one open booth will offer a good variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. Fish and meat venders are also present.
