If shopping is one of your favourite pass times, then this place will be able to satisfy you. It is because of the fact that, it is one of the biggest and most popular flea markets in the city of Madrid and also in Spain. It is open on every Sunday and other public holidays and you will be able to buy almost anything from here.

The market has one main street and a few side streets. If you just want to browse through the market, then this main street should be your destination, but if you are thinking about buying things as well, then these side streets should be the portions you should visit, because they hold the most queer and interesting things in the market.

El Rastro, Madrid Reviews - Write a Review

  • If you are into flea markets then you will really enjoy this one ! It’s every Sunday till 3pm. If you want to see the whole thing it can take you 2 hours in fast paced. I recommend to download a map of the distribution of el Rastro so it’s easier to find what you are looking for.

  • Awesome and authentic flea market of Madrid. Do not miss it if you're in Madrid on a Sunday... And discover the vibe of the bars of the neighborhood of La Latina!

  • The market is interesting. Do yourself the favor of avoiding the Main Street that is entirely garbage from eBay/Amazon. Nothing worth your time unless your fond of losing money. The side streets can have some gems but as with any flea market that has a large clientele, there’s little in the form of haggling and everything is the “right” price.

  • A lot of things to see. Just be aware of your own belongings. A lot of pick pockets.

  • This is NOT a flea market. Kind of a waste of time. This is partially Google fault for listing it as such. The description says it is open on Saturday. I will try Sunday. But not Saturday.
