Restaurants and bars open temporary, “pop-up” operations all the time to test a new concept, but here’s one you don’t see every day: A historic food market in Madrid is popping up in Miami’s Bayfront Park (301 Biscayne Blvd.) from Saturday through the end of January.

La Feria del Mercado de San Miguel is a traveling spinoff of Madrid’s 100-year-old El Mercado de San Miguel. Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez and Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado will lead a private ribbon-cutting Friday night, before the 9,000-square-foot, open-air market welcomes visitors at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Guests will find food and drink kiosks selling all sorts of Spanish tapas and delicacies: acorn-fed ham, gin and tonics, squid-ink paella, montaditos, gazpacho, fruits, meats, fish and more. The market is set to run through Jan. 31 before moving on to another U.S. city yet to be announced.
