Unquestionably my favorite food find in Madrid.
Plenty of tapas and tasties to pick from.  Most items are
displayed in glass cases.  Everything from dessert to jamon
to sushi.  Everything good quality.  Plenty of authentic
Spanish as well as international eats. Always crowded.
Other mercado finds: frozen yoghurt, fresh fruit, good cheese
selection, coffee station, Portuguese baked goods, home-made
croquettes, salads, seafood soup, flower arrangements, caviar.
Tortilla (Spanish omelette).  Typical tapa consisting of
potatoes, egg, and onion.
My pinxtos for the day.
Pinxtos: pinchos.  Small Spanish snack or tapa.
Jamon jamon jamon.  The most popular choice of meat
in Spain.  Served as a bocadillo (baguette sandwich) usually.
Plenty of pastries to choose from.  Shortbreads and chocolate
truffles thus far are the winners.
Chocolate con churros: an absolute must-try while in Spain.
Mas postre.
