Hyper famous street market in Madrid, all sundays or local holidays from 10am to 3 pm. Main street is Ribera de Curtidores, but there are also several collateral streets and squares. Street stalls and shops with handcrafts, clothing, antiques and everything you can imagine. Second part of the morning is busier, so I normally prefer going between 11 am and 13 pm.
