Curated by thought leader Montserrat Valle – the owner of the Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid – La FERIA marries Spanish gastronomy with local ingredients carefully sourced from artisans, bakers, and farmers.   Originally opened in 1916 and later renovated by Valle in 2009, La FERIA aims to re-create classic dishes in the style of yesteryear. The culinary experience is overseen by Chef Xavi Oteiza, who along with Valle has created four main “kiosks” in the form of free standing, themed mini shops.

The staff helps to make this a true dining experience by getting in character daily with periodic live performances throughout the evening.

Produced within 9,000-square-feet of combined interior and exterior tent space, the elaborate and enhanced atmosphere brings the tastes, smells, sounds and feeling of the iconic Spanish establishment to life. This year La FERIA celebrates the original Mercado de San Miguel’s 100 year anniversary.
