Well, if you don't like crowded spots, this is not the place for you. However, if you are searching for curious things, original clothes and accessorizes, then this might be the right place to try. I saw very cute things, but I was not in...More

My wife and I spent about 2 hours at this market and had a nice time wandering the stalls. I have seen a few reviews saying all the items are junk but this is an exaggeration. Of course, since it is a flea market and...More

Nice collection of vintage jeans and that’s pretty much it. For a flea market, they sell way too many new clothes and no gems whatsoever. However, it is nice browsing through the stuff. Very crowded.

This market has everything you can imagine, but unfortunately we got there at the worst time (1-2pm) and spent most of our time trying to move one step at a time. Ended up trying to get out rather than enjoy the flea market. The side-streets...More

El Rastro is the oldest and most iconic street market in Madrid and operates only on Sunday starting at around 9 AM. It is mostly a flea market, but there are plenty of “non-flea” market stuff to buy. Also the stores and restaurants along the...More

Sprawling flea market with clothes, leather, belts, knockoff football jersey, and trinkets. Gets very crowded. Nothing special to see. Interesting glimpse of locals and tourists. No food stalls, but plenty of bodegas and cafes. Good police presence, but I would be very careful with my...More

This flea market opens only on Sundays and public holidays. Nearest underground stations are La Latina and Tirso de Molina. We arrived at 930am, some stalls already started business. The crowd picks up pretty quickly. There are a variety of clothings, bags, arty and handicrafts,...More

La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique
personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly
old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among
charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like
yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is
characterized by a young population and a bohemian
vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection
of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other

I believe El Rastro has a market everyday with Sunday being the main day where many streets are closed to traffic. There are many second hand and antique shops located in the streets where the markets take place. I am not... More
