Where to Buy Jamón Ibérico in Madrid (And Where to Eat It, Too!)

If Spain had one national gastronomic treasure, it would undoubtedly be jamón ibérico.

The country’s cured-to-perfection ham is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted before. When it comes from the pigs that are native to the Iberian peninsula, it’s even better. Of course, that probably means you’ll want to stock up! Here are our favorite places to buy jamón ibérico in Madrid (and where you can eat it, too, of course!).

Jamón ibérico is one of Spain's most legendary tapas and a staple of local cuisine. But what makes this ham better than all the rest? Join us as we go behind the bite with this infographic. #Spain #jamón #foodie #tapas #delish

Need a primer on all things Spanish ham? In the video below, Devour Tours co-founder Lauren gives a quick intro to your new favorite cured meat.

Don Jamón

Despite its seemingly touristy location right on Gran Vía, the clientele at Don Jamón tends to be a pleasant mix of locals and visitors. It’s also a great place to buy jamón ibérico in Madrid if you’re staying close to the center. Buy some fresh-sliced ham to take home for later, or enjoy it in-house. They specialize in high-quality Spanish cured meats, but they also offer some delicious home-cooked tapas as well. Order a drink (like their delicious vermouth) and get a tapa for free!

Address: Gran Vía, 60

Alma de Julián Becerro

This family-run gourmet shop now has several locations in the city. However, its Calle Cava Baja location is one of our favorite places to buy jamón ibérico in Madrid. Known as Alma de Julián Becerro, it truly captures the heart and soul of patriarch Adrián Becerro’s endeavor. The products here are carefully hand-selected to ensure the finest quality. If you have time, be sure to sample some of the meat in-shop with a nice glass of local wine.

Experience a day in the life of a true madrileño when you visit this vibrant and colorful market.
