What people say

"On Sunday mornings, Madrid's oldest--and most infamous--market occupies the streets of Lavapiés. Between the glorieta de embajadores, puerta de toledo, tirso de molina plaza, and la latina metro, crowds of people shop the housewares, antiques, crafts, vintage and secondhand clothes, and more available in the stalls. Even if you don't come on a Sunday, you can always visit the Rastro. Most permanent storefronts will be open throughout the week."
"El Rastro in Madrid, Spain, is a bustling open-air market with an eclectic mix of antiques, clothing, flea marlet finds and artisanal goods. Navigating its narrow alleys lined with vibrant stalls is a sensory adventure, offering a glimpse into the vibrant culture and bustling energy of Madrid. It's only on Sunday and go early 9am to avoid the crowds and stop by Novo Mundo for baked goods. "
"El Rastro is a must see/do in Madrid if your in the area on a Sunday! It’s an outdoor flea market with an array of vendors from second hand clothing to curated handmade gifts! "
