Like a chameleon, every market adopts the “couleur locale” of the district. We’ll tell you stories and anecdotes of each of the markets, we’ll show you the best local products and we’ll find out how the markets follow new tendencies being converted in meeting points for the neighbors offering much more than only food.
You'll get to know how the city has evolved and how it continues to adapt today. Economic and sociological aspects are shaped through the stories of common places and social involvement in the city. You'll learn what a Boniato is and how it works. (Madrid's social money).
You'll experience the city through the eyes of an active local, hearing the untold stories of the city’s transformation.
