Guided by the respect for local producers and their quality that the market promotes. This is a little corner that sells directly from a number of Asturian producers without a middleman, all under the umbrella of a charitable organization. Its products embody a journey around northern Spain. Buy them to take home, or also try some of them right there at the counter. Fruit, sausage, rice pudding, yogurt, honey, cheese, and a (spectacular) homemade chocolate custard with crushed hazelnut. Wash it all down afterwards with a glass of cider! Everything here is traditional and made with a good dose of knowledge, following sustainable production methods. See for yourself what a great time those Asturians are having every Saturday morning, but don’t get distracted and forget what you’re there for: a good-sized piece of their organic meat from free-range, outdoor-reared livestock.

A feature of Madrid’s Chamberí neighborhood since 1933, the Vallehermoso Market’s raison d’etre is the same as when it first opened its doors: selling quality products. However, today it does so under a new business model. Not only can customers shop there, but also grab tapas, lunch, or dinner at one of its many catering outlets.
