Gastronomic markets are more fashionable than ever. There are more and more buildings that bring together this foodie concept in Madrid, to satisfy the culinary needs of the most restless palates. With that premise, the Mercado de San Leopoldo has just opened in Plaza Castilla, one of the few areas of the capital that was still ‘orphaned’ of a good market. Located in a building with half a century of history where there used to be a shopping mall -the old sign still remains on the walls-, the San Leopoldo Market opens in style, with well-known names such as Casa Dani, Juancho’s BBQ or La Martinuca.

In addition, one of the revolutions that brings this new market is that it offers the possibility of making a common order through a QR, with which you can choose dishes from different stalls and combine as you like. From a skewer of tortilla from Casa Dani, to a pizza from D’Agustto or one of the artisan cheesecakes from Montchis.

Proposals for all tastes

One of the great assets of the new Mercado de San Leopoldo is the variety of gastronomic proposals that visitors have at their disposal. As we mentioned above, there are great emblematic brands such as Casa Dani, famous for its tortillas, which received the award for the best tortilla in Spain in 2019; Juancho ́s BBQ, recognized for having created the best hamburger in the country (2019-2022); or La Martinuca, where its traditional tortilla or its Ensaladilla Rusa are authentic icons.

But in the restaurant, we also find a perfect combination of the traditional and the modern to provide an unforgettable culinary experience of high quality. For lovers of Italian food, D’Agustto prepares pizzas made at the moment where the classic and the modern come together in each portion. If you want to try an original concept of hot dogs inspired by homemade recipes, Döggo will be your stop. Another of the world’s most beloved cuisines also has a place in San Leopoldo thanks to Trompo, which brings to the capital the most popular tacos al pastor of Mexican gastronomy. Nor can you miss a vegan, healthy and tasty proposal, such as Yeggie. In addition, in the coming weeks the gastronomic offer will be completed with new stands, which promise to surprise.

A project for the neighborhood

In addition to providing a quality gastronomic offer, the Mercado de San Leopoldo aims to energize the life of the neighborhood by contributing to improve the welfare, leisure and development of the local community, strengthening ties between neighbors in the neighborhood.

“We are proud to have revived an old market and restored its function as a meeting point for neighbors, workers and foodies. We have managed to bring together in one place brands that had never been so close to each other, with the enthusiasm to bring to the northern area of the Castellana what they have been offering for years in Chamberí, Centro and Salamanca. The Tetuán neighborhood, where we are located, is booming, and the brands that have joined this project are perfect proof of this. We are sure that our Mercado de San Leopoldo will provide our visitors with a memorable experience,” says Leopoldo Guzmán, director of Mercado de San Leopoldo.

The Market also has a strong commitment to sustainability and wellness. This is made clear by measures such as setting up a special area to offer tap water from Madrid. This way, there is no need to queue at the bar or have to use disposable bottles. “We see a bright future for Mercado de San Leopoldo because we have assembled a talented and passionate team that shares the same vision. Together, we have created a space where local flavors blend with global influences. And where Mahou beer and Madrid tap water are also part of the experience. We believe our market will become a reference point in the city’s gastronomic scene,” concludes Leopoldo.
