Rastro Flea Market
The city's famous Sunday flea market is also open on all holidays, when other shops are closed. Located along the main drag of Calle Ribera de Curtidores, the market sells virtually any product ever made, from paella pans and cowskin rugs to tube socks. On the side streets, the cavernous shops once piled high with dusty old furniture are being replaced by gallery-like boutiques with carefully curated collectibles. For vintage hunters, the streets worth strolling include Bastero, Mira el Rio Alta, Carnero, the Plaza General Vara de Rey, and the Galerias Piquer off Calle de la Ribera de Curtidores. It's worth noting that many of these shops are open all week, if you want to avoid Sunday’s crowds.
