"Anything and everything a chap can unload / Is sold off the barrow in Portebello road", goes the song. Well, in Madrid's flea market you might find even more of anything and everything...and surely more crowds, random performances and fun! Locals often make a stop to have some tapas and cañas (fresh, cold beer) in bars along the market streets.
This authentic open air market comes to live every Sunday in the most popular and picturesque area of the old town, which is a must-see in it's own right, but undoubtedly better on sunny, crowded Sundays! You will find all types of products, varying for old furniture (vintage-seekers will love) to clothes, food and unimaginable stuff!
Don't miss the antique shops in the area if you still think you haven't found what you were looking for!
