I was born in Madrid, I am not Gato though. My favourite food is Spanish omelette with onions! On weekends I love hiking in the mountains of Madrid. I’m a big movie buff. One of my favourite Spanish movies is Primos, have you seen it?

Hello Spaneasiers! How are your Spanish classes going? We hope that you are enjoying your time in our school, that’s why today we want to show you some of the best street markets of the city that are celebrated each month. This is a way to get to know better Madrid with some company at the same time you are having fun and discover new articles. 

In the first place, we have to start with the most popular market in the city: El Rastro. You probably might know it but if you are new in Madrid and you want to wander in this street market you should check out this post where we talk about where it is located, where you can find it, etcetera. 

Following with other street markets that are as known as the first one, we can’t forget the Mercado de los Motores (Engine Market). It might look like by its name that it’s a market dedicated to cars and engines, but actually it’s called that way because it’s located in the old railway station of Delicias. There you can buy handmade products, vintage objects or different types of food to try and taste.

On the other hand, in Legazpi, specifically in El Matadero you can find every last weekend of the month a street market called Madrid Productores. In this market you can find homemade and eco-friendly products from Madrid’s Community. It’s a great place to visit if you want to help small commerce and to taste great food. 

If you like special pieces that aren’t common the Toy Market might be your place. This one is located in different places as it is celebrated every Saturday. You don’t have to pay to get in and in there you will find a huge selection of old toys, new ones or even collection pieces.  

Lastly but not least, if you love books and reading, you will fall in love with this permanent street market as it has different stands that offer every book that you can imagine. It is located in Moyano’s Slope, next to the Prado’s Promenade and the Botanic Garden. It’s a great place if you want to walk and take a look at the books that they have and then go to the Retiro Park. 

That’s everything for today Spaneasiers! We hope you enjoyed today’s post and if you know more street markets in Madrid let us know in the comments! See you soon!
