SECOND HAND MARKETS

SANT ANTONI SUNDAY MARKET / BARCELONA: TIMELESS BOOKS.
On Sundays, Barcelona smells of old books and steaming dust on a vinyl by Frank Zappa. Once every seven days, 52 times a year, the Sant Antoni Sunday market faithfully receives collectors of second-hand books, stamps or those in search declassified records. Between the Ensanche and the Raval districts, and now having run for more than 70 years, this market has become a meeting place for seekers of old titles at the good price, audio-visual materials and video games.

OVIEDO MARKET: A PRIVILEGED CORNER.
In the ancient quarter, Oviedo street market is held every Sunday morning. It is spread along eight streets and offers from books and vinyls to textile material, the most sought after item. More than 260 traders are distributed over two sections: one devoted to antiques, which is around the Plaza de Abastos, and another specialised in second-hand items in the Parque del Campillín. It has been alongside the El Fontán market for over 50 years. For many people, it is the perfect excuse to end their shopping with an aperitif in the many bars of the city’s ancient quarter.

VALENCIA PLAZA REDONDA STREET MARKET: FROM VINTAGE TO SILKWORMS.
Valencia is another ‘hotspot’ for seekers of street market items. Just go to the centre of the city and, amongst its most historical streets, look for a circular square called Plaza Nueva or Plaza Redonda. This dates back to 1840, when meat and fish were sold there. Since then, it has been populated by small trades of domestic objects and food, though today they specialise more in clothes. On Sundays, the Plaza Redonda becomes a majestic street market for all kinds of second-hand items. Music, books and collectors comics, sculptures, films, toys and animals (from dogs and parrots to silkworms).

MADRID RASTRO. WHERE SUNDAY BEGINS.
The Rastro, the most famous street market in Spain with over 500 years of history, has its own rules. Eight in the morning and around a hundred traders get their stands ready. At nine o’clock everything is ready to start. At 11 o’clock, the street market is bustling with its offer of vintage furniture, old clothes, graduated glasses, old comics and anything else you might think of. The Rastro always ends at the bar of one of the establishments in the La Latina district. Spreading over more than six streets, the market creates a ‘micro city’ within Madrid.
