A good stroll for a Sunday morning but a lot of the stalls are similar. There are some stalls for tourists to buy souvenirs, which are all fairly priced.

Definitely a place to see if visiting Madrid on a Sunday. Like all good markets, there are plenty of locals getting their sundries here, as well as tourists looking for the memorable affordable souvenir. A beautiful tree-lined street will keep the summer sun off of...More

Only on Sundays! If you're visiting Madrid on a Sunday, make time to visit. Compares to the 51st Street Festival in Manhattan, NYC. However, larger in size and vendors! No haggling for prices was my experience, prices are already low.

Only open on Sundays. A great way to spend 2-3 hours. Even if you do not intend to buy anything,,,,, it will be hard to resist all the "bargains". Lots of junk, some antiques, many vendors, all fun. Just be sure to secure your wallet...More

This market is a Sunday institution for madridilenos but the main thoroughfare is dominated by cheap t-shirts, shoes, belts, hats, etc and is much the same fare as you would find in any major city market such as Camden Town in London. There is more...More

La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique
personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly
old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among
charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like
yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is
characterized by a young population and a bohemian
vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection
of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other

According to the Madrid tourism website, El Rastro is open every Sunday and public holiday of the year. Since December 26, 2016, is a public holiday the market should be open.
