Crushing on Mercado El Huerto de Lucas

Before arriving in Madrid, I wasn’t sure what the mercado culture wa1st images like here but, within a few months after my arrival, I found I had fallen completely in love with it. First, with the most famous ones: San Miguel, San Anton, San Ildefonso. But my real market crush was El huerto de Lucas in Chueca area: the real jewel of the city. Situated in Calle San Lucas into the whole center of Madrid, it offers a breath of fresh air into the already vibrant Chueca neighbourhood.
While it doesn’t look particularly special from the shop windows, its inner secret garden will steal your heart in seconds. The 450m2 dedicated to health and environmental care offers tons of high quality and 100% organic products of any type 2nd image(cheese, meat, fruits & vegetables, tea & coffee, etc) in a green and environmentally designed atmosphere. You can choose whether to buy these products in the market as raw ingredients for homemade dishes, to eat them directly on-site, or to take the easy take out route and get the pre-prepared products del4th imageivered directly to your home.
The restaurant attached to the market, La Cantina Orgánica, offers ecological and sustainable gastronomy based on the quality of the products sold in the market. And the flavors of each dish is… INCREDIBLE! They also offer special brunch that is sure to make your mouth water and yo3rd imageur tummy sing.
This fantastic cuisine is available in two locations: one on Calle San Lucas 13 (Chueca) and another one on Calle Hermosilla 103 (Goya).
The concept of San Lucas seduced us with its peaceful, fresh, and relaxing vibe, as well providing unique place that you won’t find anywhere else in the center. Spending time in this verdant area, drinking fresh fruit juice or smoothies, is the perfect way to spend one of the hot afternoons in the coming summer! See you there!
