After the Cathedral, the Mercado de Abastos is the second most visited place in the Galician capital. Located in the Plaza de Abastos, between the Church of San Agustín del Norte and the Church of San Fiz de Solovio, it is one of the favourite attractions for tourists due to its wide variety of fresh produce.
The history of this market dates back to 1870, when the town's merchants gathered in the square to sell their products. Launched in 1941, the current market is the work of Joaquín Vaquero and has more than five thousand square metres spread over eight two-storey halls, so it is necessary to arrive in good time to explore all the stalls. The market is currently open from 8:00 to 14:00 from Monday to Saturday.
The market's activity is not limited to the Plaza de Abastos, but through its website you can also order all kinds of fresh products such as fish, seafood, vegetables, fruit, etc. In addition, they also accept orders by phone, the possibility of vacuum packaging any product chosen or the option to enjoy your products cooked on the spot in the cafeteria of the market.
Every year, thousands of pilgrims arrive in Santiago de Compostela after travelling hundreds of kilometres through different routes from many parts of Europe such as Portugal, France or the United Kingdom.
Located in the historic centre, the Mercado de Abastos is an obligatory stop for pilgrims visiting the capital, as it has all kinds of Galician products that provide the necessary energy to continue the journey.
