Weekend Wanderings: Mercado de San Miguel

Monday, February 17, 2014

Last month I had one of my best weekends in Madrid thus far when my great-grand little sis from my sorority came to visit me. Both my great-grand little Morgan and I are complete foodies, so naturally we made a few stops to Mercado de San Miguel during her trip. 

On our first visit we were too full from lunch to feast upon the plethora of epicurean delicacies, so the next day we returned to the market around lunchtime with empty stomachs. We indulged on a gourmet meal of savory tapas at the market, snacking and sipping wine among the chic locals. I devoured a selection of creamy cheeses and rich jamón ibérico, while Morgan sampled a variety of exotic seafood, cheeses and pastries.

We had way too much fun eating and drinking our way through Madrid. One of my favorite parts about living abroad is getting to connect with other friends who are overseas. There's no better feeling than having a little piece of home here in Europe - it's the best of both worlds!

You can find some of my previous photos from Mercado de San Miguel here!
