Held every Sunday (and a smaller market Monday to Saturday) along the Ribera de Curtidores is the weekly Flea Market in Madrid. A huge market and shopping fest. It seems as if the whole population of Madrid were there when I visited... V. Busy. Loads of stuff for sale from replica football shirts, jewellery, clothing and even furniture. Just off the Ribera de Curtidores is Plaza General Vara del Rey and it's here you'll find the true flea market; second hand clothes and general bric-a-brac.

Address: Ribera de Curtidores
Directions: Just south of the old town, about 20 mins walk from Plaza Mayor
