I first heard about Mercado de Diseno when I was researching markets for a business idea a few weeks ago. I’m sure like many of you, I usually stumble upon markets here in Madrid by accident. This was the first time I actually found a market and planned to attend in advance. Mercado de Diseno is held at different venues every month and this month it was at the Matadero Madrid, November 12th & 13th(if you have not visited the Matadero, it’s a lovely cultural, tourism, and business center in Madrid and hosts many different events monthly).
Mercado de Diseno is an awesome market filled with a variety of artisanal designers, a delicious array of food trucks, and live music. Normally at these markets I’m looking for accessories & home treasures and that’s exactly what I found(peep some of them below). Much like the rest of Madrid on a Sunday, the market was bustling with families & friends relaxing, playing, eating, taking drinks, and enjoying their Sunday afternoon.
Next month, Mercado de Diseno will have a special holiday edition on December 17th & 18th at Circulo de Bellas de Artes de Madrid. If you are still in town for the holidays I would definitely recommend checking out the festivities!

Below are some of my photos from the market, including some of the designers that I loved!
I hope you enjoy!
