Not sure what you’re in the mood for, but feel like wandering around and sampling homemade potato chips, empanadas, and anything else that screams “I’m in Spain”? You can do all that and more at Mercado de San Antón. There are first-floor stands where you can taste freshly-sliced Iberian ham, cool off with a lime, yogurt, and cardamom popsicle, or pick up artisanal soaps or olive oil to take back in your suitcase.

The market’s al fresco rooftop is a hip hangout when it’s warm out, and overlooks the red rooftops of the city’s funky Chueca neighborhood. If you’re looking for a full meal, skip the sit-down restaurant and head to the food stalls on the second floor. Try some seafood tapas and tostas at the Casa Bacalao, or the fresh tiger mussels from Hevia.
