MERCADO ANTON MARTIN

MERCADO ANTON MARTIN

I love all the Madrid markets, probably I can even start a blog only about food markets.

I don’t know if all my interested is due to my father. He was working in markets selling fruits, and when I was a child I used to reach him sometimes.

It’s a very hard work and I totally respect all the workers that everyday wake up and open their stalls, even if it’s cold, it’s hard and all a lot of the other stalls are closed, it is still a beautiful job.

El Rastro was born in 1740. It is very popolar, on sunday mornings to go and walk around the stalls.

La Latina and Tirso de Molina undergrounds are always full of people direct to the market which is formed mostly by shops that open their doors showing their products on the streets.

Plaza the Cascorro is one of the central points even if you find modern shopping more than antiques. The very old part of the market is where all the tiny streets of La Latina are, there is not a precise route, you just need to get lost in the middle of the Rastro.

 

For the first time I went out with my very first professional camera on the afternoon of the the 25th of December, yes, Christmas!

The camera was my xmas gift to myself and Plaza Mayor with all the Christmas stalls, the baloons for the kids and the soap balls was the perfect place to start shooting.

The light was perfect and so different from one picture to another, slowly fading into dark.

I’ve been many times to the garage of El Paracaidista, which is now called Mini Hub, and it’s not a garage in the traditional sense, but more a great location of innovative events, but never been to the main concept store, until today.

I definitely have to come back soon on the terrace and chilling under the sun because it is really amazing.
