Whether I talk to you about graphic design, illustration or visual arts, I am always referring to Mercado de diseño. The central market where hundreds of local, national and international designers promote their work and sell their products in Madrid.
This event is hosted at Matadero Madrid every month, right off Legazpi metro station and it has been one of my favorite spots to purchase modern, off the beaten path and bizarre instruments at, since 2007.
I am also interested in industrial and interior design and thus I visit their exhibition every season in order to be updated on the latest trends. What I saw there last season was what the newest hotels in Madrid used as decoration this year.
They also organize a food truck event called Big Food, Grrrreat market where visitors can purchase 5 star gourmet cuisine in the street. It is usually held on Sundays at Matadero Madrid.
