El Rastro Market

Calle Ribera de Curtidores Madrid

This flea market takes over the streets south of the Plaza Mayor every Sunday morning (it’s concentrated on Calle de la Ribera de Curtidores and the Plaza de Cascorro, south of the La Latina metro). The wares tend to be tchotchkes, but some local artists and artisans also come to display their paintings and crafts. Arrive early, and watch out for the pickpockets and purse-snatchers that prey on distracted tourists.
