    • Hi Richard, sorry for the mix-up. The flea market located “near the central Post office and the Casino Granada” was actually the “Mercadillo para coleccionistas de papel y filatelia” (C/ Acera del Darro and C/ Angel Ganivet).

      The “general” flea market that actually offers a broader variety of antiques is indeed located in Calle Casería Aguirre as Rudger commented. The post has been updated with the new address.

    I went to Seville today, no market AT ALL!!!! Happy that all shops were open otherwise kids would have been more disappointed but NO WAY there was a market in the center of Sevilla (we went for the one at Plaza del Duque).

  2. Alex

    Same thing as Marieke – there is no antique/ flea market at Alameda in Seville. We were there last Sunday and the stalls were offering solely artisan clothing and accessories.

    • Hi Alex, Marieke – Sorry that you went to this flea market for nothing. The Mercadillo “Charco La Pava” (which was previously known as “Mercadillo La Alameda”) has been transferred from the Alameda de Hércules to the Avenida Carlos III, alongside the Guadalquivir river. It takes place every Saturday and Sunday.

      The Mercadillo del Jueves also known as “Mercadillo de Antigüedades” (which takes place every Thursday from 7 am to 3 pm) in the Calle Feria, is also a good alternative to go flea market shopping.

    Does anybody know of any markets near Rosas ,on the coast east and north of Barcelona,I find it difficult to find antiques in Spain. Any help would be appreciated. John

    • Hi John, Roses (Girona) is a rather small city with a farmer market which takes place on Sunday, in Carrer Miquel Oliva Prat. However, you might want to try your luck in other localities in Girona. I found the following list of events:

      Resale Market Vilobí d’Onyar: Second Sunday of the month in the village of Vilobí d’Onyar
      Market Brocanters Coleccionismo of Figueres: Third Saturday of the month in the town of Figueres
      Market Leona: First and second Saturday of the month in the town of Girona
      Market Brocanters recycling: Every Saturday in the town of Celrà
      Resale Market St. Gregori: Fourth Sunday of the month in the village of Sant Gregori

    Hi Ashley, I would be going to seville, Barcelona and Madrid during July end – august beginning. Please could you recommend some great flea markets or stores mainly for action figures, toys and other movie/music collectibles

    • Hi Ricky, if you’re into action figures, toys and movie collectibles, I would recommend you the Feria del Juguete y Comics de Madrid, “La Estación” (Coleccionismo) y Feria de Modelismo Ferroviario. This flea market takes place at the Madrid Railway Museum . Pº Delicias 61 – 28045 Madrid, on the first Sunday of every month, from 10 am to 3 pm. You can check their facebook page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/Feriadelaestacion-262733763932884/
      Unfortunately, it seems the last event took place on July 1st, and will resume in September…
