Mercado Vallehermoso is one of the best mercado's to visit in Madrid.
Whereas Mercado San Miguel is predominantly aimed at the tourist market this mercado is most definitely a locals mercado.
Set over two floors ,theres dozens upon dozens of stalls were you can purchase all manner of local fresh produce or even better you can sample great craft beers,wines ,vermuts and great Spanish cuisine sat outside the stalls.
This mercado is particularly popular with the locals but I have noticed on my last few visits more tourists such as myself visiting here.
My twin brother Stephen and I were here on a Friday evening, the atmosphere in here was superb, we enjoyed craft beer,vermuts and great tapa, vibe in here was really good, we stayed here for about 3 hours ,visited quite a few stalls ,had a great time before we moved on .
Mercado Vallehermoso is easy to locate, we jumped the metro down to stop Quevedo and walked down Calle De Arapiles and cut onto Calle Vallehermoso were you will find this mercado.
Most definitely well worth checking out if your planning a holiday to Madrid.
