Mercado de San Miguel located just off the west side of the Plaza Mayor in Madrid is a favorite place. It's been remodeled since the last time I was in the city, all for the better. Every food imaginable is here, including oysters on the half shell which can be purchased by the piece and eaten right there. All the usual things from seafood, meats, vegetables, breads and so forth.
My wife and I enjoyed the people watching, too, as locals and visitors crammed in to do their shopping and/or have a snack. We had a very nice glass of wine and a couple of tapas from the various vendors.
It's a great place to take a break while exploring that area.
