Having reopened in May 2015 after a five-year refurbishment period, El Ninot has a much more modern feel than some of the other markets. It's spotless and spacious; the cavernous roof that covers the stalls below is constructed from steel and glass, creating a light and airy atmosphere. Even during the busy lunch hour, there's still enough room in the wide aisles for all of the many customers cruising the stalls to find something to eat.
Tip: Grab a bite at The Res. A small bar tucked in a corner of the market, it's best-known for its charcuterie, and serves delicious tapas and a variety of other dishes. The 'croquetas de jamón' (ham croquettes) are particularly delectable.
