Spanish markets are undergoing a transformation, integrating traditional stalls with leisure and dining options to ensure their survival and revitalize their daily existence. Vallehermoso Market is an open, inclusive ecosystem where producers, traders, and restaurant-owners of all generations have formed a new, extended family and shaped an innovative, eclectic, honest, and responsible market model. Vallehermoso Market is a feature of Madrid's Chamberí neighborhood. Since 1933, it has maintained the same philosophy it had when its doors first opened: to offer quality products. Now it operates under a new structure where visitors can not only shop, but also go for tapas, lunch, or dinner in its wide range of eateries. The market has more than 60 stalls — including butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers, cheese and dairy producers, poultry stands, and bakers — offering selections of quality food.
